What are water levels like in the reservoir currently? Haven't been South in a while and was looking at camping there next week wanting to drop the boat in to fish.

I haven't seen it but would almost guarantee that it is open. For those looking for water level data the AB Rivers App is really useful. They don't have Chin turned on yet but looking at last year's WL before the feed was turned off will give you an idea.

They filled Chin back up in the fall. People have been fishing near the dam, not sure how successful they were.

In 8 hours caught 12 Walleye and the two biggest were 23" & 26". The rest of the Walleye were small but fun to catch. We also caught one small Jack. Hot day and water was calm. Excellent fishing.
