John Martin spillway any good?

I know the spillway was drained this year but was curious if the fishing had been worth anything in there since refilling it? I know it may be too soon but wanted to my two young ones there this week. Thanks

Not sure about the basin but lake hasty is loaded up with blue gill for the kids with crawler and bobber. Lake side is fishing good but not many good places for smaller kids. The water edge can go from 1’ deep to 30’ in one step.

What color jigs seem to work best in that lake?

3” white or chartreuse twister tails or 3” gulp minnows.
