    I used to fish that area alot. Chum the channels at the mouth of creeks for channel cats.

    We would always fish the spillway, but thats has been several years ago.

    Good luck on the spillway. I was there a month ago and it was packed shoulder to shoulder with Mexicans who were keeping even the smallest of fish that they caught. Filed a report with OGT since minimum size is 12".

    We fished for about two hours and caught nothing but tiny channels less than 8".

    The spillway is good,really good when there generating. instead of fishing up close(to the dam) like everbody else,walk down aways and give it a try. Ive had real good luck doing this. As for main lake spots,Willis Creek is excellent for spring time yellows,its best to time it when the whites are running. The main river channel is also a good spot for some jug lines. As a whole Lake Granger might be the best "catfishing lake" in central Texas,thats just MHO. Good Luck!
