I had no problem getting the boat in an out by myself at the dam.  There is an eddie there, so the current doesn't affect you too much.

Went tonight all gates open and the chute. Parking lot us accessible and saw l iui gets of a boat down the river. Casted from shore for an hour but waves and fast water made shore fishing tough.

I was out on the 13th and all gates were open.  I arrived at 10:00 and was the only boat out there for the next two hours.  Caught a lot of small eyes, six nice whities and a 30# sturgeon, lots of fun!  With the water levels as high as they are, I suspect the gates are still open and will be for another week or so.  FYI, I have some of my best fishing below the dam when the gates are open.

Got out around 8am and tried our luck up near the dam.  We found a variety of different species: catfish,  white bass, sheepshead and walleyes.  No keepers,  about 20 shorts.  Constant rain,  heavy at times didn't help matters.  We also took a run down river but didn't find a better bite elsewhere.  Water temps going around 59°.
