Having never fished it before I am looking for some direction...
-Are there any safety considerations? Is the water very deep or is it all wadable?
-What weight equipment do I need? Can I use a freshwater spinner with 8 or 10lb line? Or should I bring my surf rod with 15lb test?
-Does time-of-day play a key role at this spot? Do I need to be there pre-dawn, or can I fish the middle of the afternoon?

Actualy its been hit or miss for a while now,mostly miss the past week or so anyway.Its starting to warm up today and its supposed to get real nice over the next few days.
I don't think the "bite" is best in morning or eve,any of the fish I caught so far were in the middle of the afternoon,out going tide seems to be best,but there really are no set rules this early in the spring.Hit or miss,like I said before.
No need for heavy gear at this point,10 or 12lb test should be fine,lures or small plastics,best choice.
For a small fee,I can guide you to all Joev's spots........

Between the 5 or 6 guys I have shown around there you should be able to get some good info.The place will be a zoo this year due to the info and reports from certain web sites.My suggestions are to fish very late weekdays anytime the water is running.Place is tricky with a 5-6 ft tide and the water turning on\off.Took me 3 years to get a half way decent handle on it.You got a couple of weeks for the big fish to start showing in numbers.If the water is on at dam you will need a heavy stick to fight big fish in heavy current with a bunch of guys casting over your line .Usally about 15-20 guys on both sides fishing during normal hours in the peak of the run.More on the weekends.
Good Luck and you might see me lurking around in my yak.
Always Wishin I Was Yak Fishin
All fisherman are liars except for me and you.But I am not so sure about you

Its fun to watch the people, but may not be fun to fish it most of the time. More like a side show at the circus.
