2. Pymatuning Spillway
The Pymatuning Spillway on Pymatuning Lake is home to thousands of large carp, Canadian geese, ducks, and other waterfowl. For decades, folks have tossed chunks of bread to the fish and birds, and for decades, fish and birds have fought for those delicious morsels. The animals wait around, begging for their treats, the fish with their large mouths wide open in a hilarious pose, the eyes of the ducks and geese darting from spectator to spectator to see who will throw next, and the seagulls often standing on the backs of the large carp to get the best vantage point.
Bring your own bread to the Spillway, or better yet, purchase a bag of bread from the bread store just down the road. The bread store is a small red building owned by Mary MacDonald. Mary runs her store on the honor system: decide which size bag of bread you want and drop your cash in the box.
The Spillway also has an ice cream and snack shack, as well as public restrooms.
