They are starting to spawn here so try the damn face around dusk and into the night with husky jerks and x raps. Otherwise I thinking a slip bobber and a minnow would work as well.

Sorry swamps of, slater is correct. I didn't take that into consideration. Saturday at 12:00 am the dam closes at night for netting spawners.

From the regs:  "FISHING IS PROHIBITED from the dam and within 100 feet of the dam or walleye spawning operation nets March 15-April 15, 4 p.m. to 9 a.m."

Flags up, gentlemen!!!
