The fish in the spillway are pretty big and so close together that it sometimes looks like a snake nest.... and they are packed so solid that ducks can walk over them.
By the way fishing is absolutely forbidden directly at the spillway, only further out on the lower lake.
Not all the bread is eaten by the fish, the geese and ducks get their shares.... and in acrobatic flight stunts sea gulls catch the bread if you toss it in the air.... very spectacular!
If you go to Pymatuning, you must visit the spillway! The spillway is a small area where the water moves from one end of the lake to the next, but the fun part is all the fish and ducks that gather here. At the spillway, you can toss bread to the fish and/or ducks. It is fun to watch the fish fight over the bread and the ducks try to get the bread before the fish do. You can also throw bread into the air. Many of the ducks flying around will catch it! Children especially love the Spillway.
