Watch for dropoffs/depth changes around the cut & you'll usually see fish marking on your sonar. Word of advice - fish off to the side of the cut, not in the middle of the channel. You'll get run over by big boats that don't bother slowing down to a 'no wake' speed.
If you don't mind making a little run across the lake, there's usually fish along the shorelines & humps at the Lake Park golf course area (west end of the dam).
"Decency is not news; it is buried in the obituaries --but it is a force stronger than crime" ~ Robert A. Heinlein, 1952
