Anyone catching anything in the river or does it take a while after they release water?

There are three "roll gates" that regulate the outflow of water from the lake into the river. Almost as soon as the first gate is open it will pull white bass and sometimes walleyes up to the running water. And cats will be close behind them. But two open gates seems to slow down the action with the heavier flows. And if all three are open, forget it.


You can tell at a glance whether or not there are fish to be had. The happy harvesters move in and line both sides of the channel below the gates. And you need to bring your own rock to stand on. Also gets to be full contact fishing at times.


One other downer is that the rocks below the roll gates are hungry. They really eat a lot of tackle.
