I took my 12-year old daughter to the 2011 Dale Hollow Trout Rodeo this past Saturday (and have been taking her since she was 5) where she caught 3 nice 10+ rainbows. We left the rodeo at around 11 and decided to fish right below the Dam. Olivia caught 15 bluegills before they blew the 12 noon generating sirens. We sat up on the mill spill way retaining wall to watch the water come out and I encouraged her to throw her night crawler into the spill way to see what would happen. Well she caught a nice 14+" rainbow in less than 5 minutes.
