Notes

We came to The power Plant because of the warm discharge of water flow. The main River was 33.8 degrees but below the release the water was 52 degrees. Mike said that there was so much food (shad ) bunched up in this warm water that it can be tough to catch fish on Artificial baits so we got some live shinners about 5" long. We came to catch some Rockfish, Walleye, or Smallmouth Bass. We caught none of the above! Only 2 Catfish around 3.5 Lbs. a piece. It was a cold and slow day but we still had a great time. Come on Spring Time!!!!!!
