Ever get excited when you visit a place where they have a pond and you can feed the carp? Imagine that but on super steroids. Sometimes you can catch the fish "crowd surfing". They revamped it in the last few years so it actually feels like a more modern place. We usually come here every year (camp about 15 mins... More

This place is a lot of fun! We each always take a loaf of bread and any bread scraps from home to feed to all of the fish and foul. There are ducks that honestly do walk on the backs of the fishes. There are Seagulls and geese and ducks and fish and everyone there enjoys a good feast! It's... More

I think the other travelers photos tell it all. Take bread along and just have some fun feeding the Carp, Ducks and Geese. There is good parking and the area is clean I am glad we went.

We took our grandsons to the Spillway as we've been there before and thought it would be something they'd enjoy and we were right. The area is very clean and the carp, ducks and sea gulls provide the entertainment. Take plenty of bread because it goes quickly. We stopped at a bakery outlet and had 9 loaves which disappeared within... More

I grew up coming to the spillway and wanted to share it with my husband and son. You can't help but laugh at these carp fighting over the bread! I was happy to see that the spillway was pretty busy with visitors. If you forgot bread, buy it at their concession stand. Really reasonable! The spillway is something that everyone... More

My family had a fun morning feeding the fish, ducks, geese and gulls at the spillway. We had a grammy, a 10 year old, two 3 year olds, a dog. Plus me 44. Even the 10 year old like this and she is more difficult to impress than the 3 year olds. There were other dogs bigger than mine when... More

One of the best known locations in Pymatuning is the spillway, an area where the fish are so plentiful that the "ducks walk on the fishes' backs" to fight for food from visitors. A fish feeding station is available for people with disabilities. From Fries Road to Linesville Road, this two-mile trail has parking and access at either end. This... More

There are so many large carp competing for the food thrown into the water by visitors at the spillway, that the ducks and Canadian geese literally walk on the fish to get their share of the food. This is a fun, and if you bring your own bread, cheap way to have a great time at the lake with family,... More

We drove all the way from Florida to see the fish and the ducks who walk over them. We were there on a weekday a little after 9 in the morning. There were only few people already there, and there was lots of free parking. We had brought two loaves of whole wheat bread with us. Lucky we had the... More
