Coming from about an hour away, can someone let me know if the area below the dam is fishable (is the river back too normal flow?).

I made it out to the Fox on Saturday 5.5.18 8am-11am from Case Park. Started at the dam and went down river just to the first bend past where the restaurant used to be in my waders. Water was about a foot higher than normal with all the locks on the dam having flow. Lots of people down there enjoying the day also. Most people were either up at the dam on either side and even someone fishing from the dam. ( I thought that was a no-no) but didn't bother to worry to much. Picked up 12 whitebass in the current breaks throwing tandem jig n twisters (chart & white) right off the bat and then it slowed down. Looks like most of the quill back are gone and some carp are starting to move in now. caught 3 short walleyes when I switched over to jig n ringworm (orange/chart). All but 3 whitebass were males milting with the females were huge blue-backed brutes. I'm fairly confident to say that the Rochester run for whitebass is slowing down along with the eyes beceause the walleye were all small and skinny males no longer milting. In total caught and released 12 whitebass, 3 eyes, 2 quill backs, and a carp on this trip. I might come back later this week to look for the crappies up in the pools when they close out the west lock of the dam. Best of luck to all and tight lines.

I made it out to the Waterford Dam yesterday, just up river from Rochester. 

Current was moving quick, I couldn’t walk accross where I typically do.  

Caught two Quillback and a giant carp scale.  

Nothing as far as gamefish to report, at least not from me!

Has anybody got out recently? Thinking about maybe trying some cranks and spin baits this weekend. Will report back if I get out.
