The ramp on the Windsor side open, but that’s it. There are also good reports from the Rodman Reservoir and, especially, the canal leading to it from the dam. There’s supposed to be a great bite of bluegills in the spillway on the Ocklawaha side of the ...

Activists have wanted for years to remove the dam, which is the core of the 9,000-acre Rodman Reservoir used by generations of recreational fishermen. Removing the dam and letting the reservoir drain would also restore a lot of water flow to the Ocklawaha ...

Removing the dam would be a big boost to the St. Johns River economy especially in Welaka. Our guests do not fish the Rodman Reservoir. Although I am not an ardent fisherman, I do discuss fishing with our guests to pass on information to subsequent guests.

Bluegills go after the bounty. Catfish wait for it to come to them. Bass fishing is summertime slow. Rodman Reservoir is real high right now, but the bass are beginning to school up. Keep a Texas-rigged worm tied on one rod for working the bottom and at ...

Rodman Reservoir is supposed to be hot now, but I couldn’t find anyone to confirm it. The shrimp are fully running the river, but they remain small. We just had a full moon, and that’s normally the key for the shrimp to shed their shells and grow quickly.

They (the springs and spring runs) are worth the trip alone. Rodman Reservoir it hot and the spillway under the dam is as well. But they are being forced to let a lot of runoff through the spillway, and it may take some extra weight to keep the baits down.
