The river is very fishable water is running at 9,557 cfs it was a constant. 4,540 cfs before we got all the rain. I retrieved this information off of a graph. I was not out on the lake to let you know how the fishing was. But be prepared to see a lot of boats if you're going on the weekend.

how the river close to the dam?anyone been out lately targeting kitties? its a bit of a drive for me to find out it's raging and unfishable.
Could use a warden above the highway 21 bridge occasionally. Lots of boats in the "slow, no wake area" that are flying. Big boats and jet skis way to close to fishing boats as if trying to swamp you. Please follow the rules. Thanks
Insane1 thanks a bunch appreciate it.
Illini.....all gates are open as of now. River is high as expected. Few trailers in lot.
Can anyone tell me how the river is looking? I see you had a bunch of rain. Thanks in advance. Coming up this weekend.
Friday, Catfish on fire. Sat, could not get a bite. Tried everything. Sunday, caught 6 cats, had to move alot to get those. River is going down. Anchoring has been an issue with the heavy current. Lots of boats here. No wake buoys mean run wide open until 50 feet past them. Good to know. I'll do that from now on too.....
61° - 65° F
56° - 60° F
Sorry for the late post, but a friend and I fished the dam on Friday. Got 5 catfish, legal walleye, and 1 decent whitebass. All the gates were open because of all the rain the day before which kind of messed the fishing up, but better days are still to come.
the dam has its good days and its bad days.gets lot of fisherman pressure for sure thats why i used to fish from shore at night.theres a lot of action at night.
