I have been to pfr five times and every time I go with friends we either catch nothing or baby fish. Just went 5/31/11 and the guy told me they stocked catfish corner twice recently and only managed a 1lb channel with using four poles and various baits. Recasting every 20 min and changing baits. Using Minnows, worms, and liver tight lined and bobbered., Tried multiple spots. Later on caught some baby bass and bluegills. Thats the best I have done there.
I never see any decent size fish swimming when the water is clear. There is a lot weeds already so forget about lures unless your on a boat. I always keep an eye out for anyone else catching anything and the biggest fish i seen caught was a 5lb carp. So if i can see 20 people fishing from my spot and they have two rods each thats 40 rods that are not getting any bites. The road you drive on is pretty bad. Has a lot of big pot holes. Would not take long to fill in those with some rocks maybe a half a day for a couple guys. . It seems like they don't want you to catch fish. They open at 7 which is kind of late for fisherman. And the boats have a loud chained anchor that scares away the fish. Weeds everywhere.
The place is pretty clean and is good to bring the family and barbeque but I would not recommend the place for just fishing. Unless bluegills keeps you happy. This place is either very hard to fish or they stock it regularly with baby fish.
