    I haven't been there yet, but I keep hearing that the bite is still on at the spillway.

    The flow through Tuttle's gates is just enough to keep the Big Blue flowing
    toward the Kansas River. I have little faith in the outlet unless I can see
    a little turbulence at the outlet from a distance. Then I fish on the east
    side with bobbers where it starts to flatten out a bit on the bottom with
    cutbait usually. Nightcrawlers work too, especially after a warm rain. I
    don't like bottom fishing here since there are a lot of ways to lose hook,
    line and sinker in the rip rap covered bottom. Honest, I've seen the basin
    drained for maintanance. It's rock bottomed wherever the high rip rap is
    up on the bank. But don't mind me, pick a warm day and let her float a
    ways downstream(till its hard to see the float) then cast it toward the
    center concrete divider between the active outlet and the closed one.
