For some reason people like to fish from the top of dams, while standing outside the safety rails on dams, and directly downstream of dams. It’s not something I would do as I know how dangerous dams can be, and how quickly the water can turn a pleasant day into a rapid death. This particular dam, Control Dam 1 on the Trent River, has claimed the lives of people, including 2 this year.
The fisherman below was well downstream of the dam when he caught this salmon – he was, however, being careful as he waded through the water as this section of the Trent is fast flowing, turbulent, and has some pretty weird currents.
