That's correct, they are gizzard shad. They must be in there thick because I snagged 3 in the back this morning. Made it out for a little more than an hour this morning and besides the shad I caught one 29" northern that's still swimming. Beautiful morning to be out!

Had a blast today! Caught tons of unknown fish, maybe shad? And caught a nice carp.

The lack of reports on this thread and the river thread should tell you people are busy catching fish right now, myself included. I've seen several LL'ers down there that are keeping their mouths sealed right now. It's been going on for a month now if you can't tell. As for what's biting and on what it's not that hard to figure out. Just go down there and enjoy the zoo and you will see what's being used and being caught. Avoid this place on the weekends or during the week after work otherwise you will be disappointed when you can't fish cause of all the other fisherman

The side that has an area to fish at by the fence is private.. You can wade to that side but your feet must stay in the water

Nothing doing at Waterford, so went to Rochester Dam.  First time there this year.  Starting in late afternoon,  maybe two dozen carp and one sucker.  Lots of rough fish around; no game fish.  However, heard that a few walleyes were caught downstream near the walk-across bridge.  Current very strong.

Question:  I know that the walkway above the dam is posted no trespassing.  One would have to scale/circumvent high fencing.   There is a sign on the dam fence--Do not enter.  But one other fisherman stated that the spillway/concrete floor (east of the dam)  is also 'private' and police are ticketing folks fishing on it.  I do not believe this to be true, and there are no signs there stating No Entry.   Anyone know what areas are off-limits?

The river is moving too fast to wade across. Fished 12p - 3p from the east shore. Pretty slow, only saw one carp caught.

Meet a couple nice young guys. They said the morning fishing was slow too.

Sorry late report. Braved the elements for awhile Sunday. I just happened to have 1 pole with a small crank on it. I took 15 casts or so with no action. Finally got a 14 inchish or so eye to bite but he came off a couple feet in front of me. About 5 casts or so later I smacked my crank on a bridge and that was it. River seemed to be flowing maybe a touch high but very fishable.
