I suspect the best time for 'eyes at the pool just below the dam is spring and fall , but is it a sustainable and good fishery for 'eyes the rest of the year as well ? I've never fished it any time of the year . Thanks to all !

    Summer time you pick one up here and there.... but not consistently. Not sure that the spring and fall would be any different. Seeing how any fish there would only be there cause they made it through the outlet. That's purely speculation on my part though...

    I've caught everything BUT a walleye there. Largemouth, crappie, perch, cats, saw a guy catch a nice trout one time. It's kind of fun, you never know what you will pull in next!

    x2 on the walleye coming up from the Susquehanna. They get stopped at Sayers spillway.  I heard prior to sayers being built, eels and walleye could be caught pretty much on most of the baldie.  Pre-spawn would probably be the best time to try for them.

    I got a bunch of French military rifles for sale...NEVER fired and only dropped once.

    Fished the spillway from feb til may in the late 90's several times a week and caught tons of walleye.  An hour prior to dark til dark and then about 2 hours later.  3-4 guys waould average 5-6 a nite, most in the 20-24" range.  Biggest was a 33" 12#er.  Also got many large trout and musky.  Several 40" musky and 25" trout.  Used lures only.  Firetiger for trout and black and gold for walleye. All C&R since this was a closed time of year. Also did well down to the first bridge.
