The pier at this time is scheduled to open on April 1st. There have been some Browns in the discharge the last couple of weeks but nothing like there was a month ago. Both units should be in and running on the opening of the pier, there is good flow out of the discharge and good current but many fish on the bottom holding out of the current. One unit coming out April 4th for two weeks but not sure if the circulating pumps will be taken out for that short of time? There is more carp coming in every day and quite a few of whitefish and gizzard shad as well. For those that are thinking about putting in kayaks off the beach by the public pier that is not allowed, no boat launching of any kind of floatable, read the sign by the pier entrance when it opens. You would have to put in at Bender Park. Beach is open for fishing as well but no wading.

Paully ~ The pier fishermen probably don't know, but I would check the adjacent threads, like Racine or Bender. There have ramps, but I've never seen a ramp @ the power plant itself, though taking the kayak out at their pier/beach area looks doable. GL

lurelooser.... no such thing as a free ramp in the area, 10.50+ depending on boat, and where you are from.

I and others have been fishing around the pier when there isn't an east wind to muck up the waters, like there has been so much lately. Pretty slow. Seems everything is out 100 yards or more.

To All, It has been decided today that the season opening of the fishing pier at the Oak Creek Expansion Plant has been postponed until April 1st, 2015. Due to the amount of ice buildup on the pier over the winter the pier at this time remains unsafe for public travel. The entrance to the fishing pier road at Oakwood Road has been posted informing visitors of the new postponed opening date. Sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused to some in there plans on fishing the pier this coming weekend.

I understand Powerman. "if wishes were horses, beggars would ride them." Too bad it cant stay open year round just weather permitting. Its a shame we live in a society where suing and taking responsibility for ones own action goes right out the door.

Chinas tic, I know how you feel I fished the winter months at the power plants for many years and know the quality of fishing that can be had during the winter time. Prior to the pier opening to the general public I tried to get the pier closed period from December 15 to February 15, that would give two extra months of fishing. But as others had stated the pier is not managed during the winter as far as ice and snow removal which then becomes a safety issue. Maybe in the future they will go to a day to day opening until the weather turns bad? Once again thank you for visiting the pier and hope you had a good fishing opportunity this year.

It would get pretty dangerous in the winter due to ice buildup.

Its a shame this pier head is wasted space during the prime time of the year. I rather see this place be closed from March 15 to November 15 and only open during the winter months.
