Is there a way to get army corp. of engineer information on when they are going to let water out?. Live 4 hrs. Away and would like to know ahead of time when water will be coming out of dam. Is this possible?

I went to the spillway and got there around 6:30 am. First thing I noticed is that the river is really low. Barely any water coming out of the dam and there is really very little current. I fished two of my traditional spots on the east side using grubs with a 1/4 ounce head. First spot not even one bite. Moved closer to the dam and within 30 minutes caught one sauger and half an hour later caught one gar. at 9 am I hooked a pretty good muskie but after the first jump it broke my line. 9 am was when I had to leave so that's it. I did see one guy catch either a walleye or a sauger on the transition between the rock and concrete but that was about it. Until they start releasing water down there it could be pretty rough for fishing.

290 cfs right now.  That is not a lot of water coming through the dam.
