Tailrace fishing question

I do a lot of camping at the Downstream Campground and over the last 2 or 3 years I always see lots of boats fishing where the spillway blowout and the river meet. I've seen boats go down river and come back up after only a couple hours of fishing.  Got me thinking there must be something going on there.  I don't want to bring my big boat down the river so I bought a smaller 16' boat specifically to target this area.  I'm making my first trip this weekend.  I'm just kind of guessing but it looks like a place to just get out of the main river into the slack water and vertical jig.  Any advice?
