So, with all the water going over the spillway and through the dam, a ton of fish are being caught in the river. Had a couple of good trips myself with a 20 lbr last week.

My question is, will all the the stripers now in the river, will they survive and spawn in the river below the dam, or are they doomed?

The spawn success depends on flow.

So you're saying it is possible?

Reason I ask is that I have had a couple of people tell me lately that the fish are pretty much done-for once they come out of the lake. And while they may survive a while, they will not reproduce.

I guess even if they did spawn, if we have a drought like we had over the last few years, they won't survive anyway. . .

Same water in river as in lake, depends how far they swim upstream to do the "deed"! If there is flow to keep eggs floating, they should be viable i would assume. I'd be more concerned this year with silt covering them.
