    i'm headin up to the spillway here in a couple of hours to see if i can convince some cats to to give up. not sure how many people will be up there, with it being a holiday weekend its probably packed, but i'm going anyway.
    anyone else headed that way, i'm going to try and get the east side down by the channel marker (first street light past the bathrooms), but with the crowds its hard tellin where i'll wind up.
    will get back on when i get home to fill in how it went.

    Best of luck. I didn't catch anything there yesterday. Fished both sides of the spillway.
