I fished this stretch in the middle of the afternoon for about an hour or so. Caught a ~24" pike on my first cast with an ugly crankbait, no other hits. Saw baitfish breaking the surface, and every so often a large swirl from a chasing fish. On a weekday there were half a dozen people fishing, so I gather it is a popular spot. I don't know how much the fishing pressure affects it.
