Have been to the spillway in the past & used to be chock full of carp. So much so that the ducks could walk on top of them, like they were walking on water. This past trip had significantly less carp, and the water was full of bread they hadn't eaten. Kind of gross.

There were plenty of carp, ducks and geese to feed. The ducks are pretty fast and at times were fed more than the fish. I have no idea how many carp are in that area, but wherever people were feeding them, they were there. Everyone around us was smiling and having a good time. If you're near Pymatuning, definitely stop by. You can buy bread or feed there if you forget to bring your own.

Fun for all ages. We've visited this place twice. The fish are so funny. We make sure we stop at the bakery outlet and get lots and lots of bread, buns and bagels before we go. We can spend an hour or more here just watching all of the fish. You have to see to believe. Fun for all ages. A must visit place if you are in the area

Upon arriving, the 10 year old says "I hope winter never happens here. These fish will die. They don't know how to find their own food." Five minutes later, the 12 year old says "The fish don't get full. They're not smart enough to know when to stop. We should tell people to stop feeding them." Next to us, an lady who has had her fair share of processed food throws in fist-fulls of basic white bread, and barks at her child to open up the pop tarts. THEY THREW WHOLE POP TARTS AT FISH!! She proceeds to comment, "Look at all these big fish! How did they get so big?!" Cue my kids wide-eyed, aghast, and completely ready to barf: I don't think they'll be asking for pop-tarts or white bread anytime soon. Gross. Just a nasty practice taking advantage of bird brains and fish brains that don't know any better. Can we at least give them foods they would find in nature? Make it a challenge for them to find the food? Something? THEY AREN'T HUNGRY, PEOPLE! They are 20-40 pound fish eating probably five loaves of bread a day. EACH. Go if you want. Maybe those are your kind of fish.

The spillway is full (hundreds) of carp fish, geese and sea gulls. A few loafs of bread will keep children and children at heart entertained for a few hours. Throw pieces of bread into the water and watch as huge fish jump and open their large mouths to fight for the food.
