Alanson Locks Spillway
The pool to the northeast side of the locks formed by the wier makes a good place to toss
an offering. Smallmouth
can be found hanging around all year looking
for the minnows that gather here. The rock bottom to the center of the channel holds
crawfish and other food for the predator. I have run into a few Tiger Muskie while fishing here. They are a mix
between a pike and muskie and tough to catch.
The spot I fish the most here, the fast water, offers a
variety of fishing choices. Good small mouth, walleye, rock bass,
even catfish in the summer an suckers are an easy catch early spring.
Use a floating slip sinker
set up aand a large minnow. Remember to hook it
though the top of the nose and down through the lower jaw. If you
reverse this through the lower jaw first, the minnow will float
up-side down. Use the reverse when fishing a lead head jig.
