Just pulled my friends pier on the river.  There is almost zero flow.  You will need to run your trolling motor or hope for wind assist if you want to drift jig.  Also note there is no pier st groeller rd if you plan to launch there!

I know that the water is low, but is there any kind of water flowing? Enough for some drifting?

Anyone have any luck from shore? Coming up early saturday to fish so if anyone has any tips let me know. Also any decent bait shop in the area?

This level of river has no bearing on the Watertown area.  That is the Jefferson dam that controls upstream.  The stretch you are referring to is controlled by the Indianford dam.  The level has nothing to do with the Watertown repair.  It is the new agreed upon winter drawdown the DNR will now go by.  Get used to this low fall winter level because it will be the new norm.

Water levels are being drawn down father then normal cause in Watertown they are doing dam repairs from what I've heard and seen. Only the middle channel is what see in Watertown because of this, I know they do a draw down every fall but I think this is why they are lower then norm.  Now for my report hit the river for a while from shore and did really well caught 22 eyes and sauger mix 3 legals 16", 17-1/2" and a 24" kept the 16 and 17 threw the 24 back. Was there about 2-1/2 hours they were aggressive hitting small hair jigs also a lot of small crappie

Pier has been pulled. Launch at your own risk. I'll be out tomorrow! DNR has been out conducting electroshock surveying. I hope they have good news. Water level is very low and rain is not affecting it appreciably.

Agreed 100% with you!  They however don’t care one bit about how the water level effects fishing.
