ottertail spillway

Is the Ottertail Spillway running low currently? I will be up the 3rd week of May as I do every year. Just wondering if anyone has fished the spillway or Phelps Mill. Is there usually a peak time to hit these spots? I hope the size of the Pike will increase, I haven't caught a decent sized pike in many years. Isn't that true that they do have size restrictions on them now? I hope so, the larger pike have all but vanished from what I've seen. Any feedback would be appreciated.

the entire lake is low, so yes, there isn't much spilling over. They do have a 30" minimum on northerns now and you can only keep one. Should be interesting to watch the results of this as the years go on.

Cabin boy,

Thanks for your response. It's about time they put a size limit on those northern. I was catching panfish that weighed more than most of those little pike. So the limit went from 3 to 1? That's great they did, hopefully the size and numbers will increase over the future.
