Headed out there yesterday with my brother-in-law. Found the water to be extremely low and almost all the gates locked. I don't know if this was because of hunting season or because the water is low and the dam area is too dangerous to fish. We finally decided on fishing the boat ramp on the west side. We got there and saw we had to climb down the rocks to the sand to get to the water. While in the process of getting down my brother-in-law fell down the rocks and hurt himself really bad. I told him that I thought we should leave so he could go to the doctor. But he said no. So we fished for 45 minutes before he said we should go because he wasn't feeling good. The wind was blowing very hard. White caps ave. 2-3 ft. Lake appears shallow all around. Some trout, bigger than 15", seen jumping. Local fisherman said he had some hits on Power Bait and 'crawlers. I think it could be good right now, especially for cats at night in the shallows.
