Default Senecaville Spillway

Anyone that likes fishin the upper side of Seneca spillway is in for a shock... There are keep out signs posted with caution tape from wall to wall. The Army corps of engineers has deemed it unsafe due to erosion. They won't reopen it until they repair it and feel it's safe. Caught some real good Saugeyes up there, sad to see it close, but have watched the sides start give to give way for years.

Yeah, you can still fish down stream, but be careful.. Snaggers have hit the lower side hard for years... even if you do catch em legally.. the drag marks may be hard to explain. ODNR did have a crack down on them last year... Haven't seen the snaggers yet this year.

I know. Hopefully it will only be about a month... and they don't mess it up too bad with changes they make. I fear it won't be the same place after they are done.

Do you guys mostly fish small leadhead jigs for them down there. Will be down there next week and would be happy to catch a couple of saugeyes. Plan on fishing NOT snagging. Probably will only fish for an hour or so. Thanks for any info.
