Is this the pier on Elm Road? Never knew they turned that into a pier! When did they do that? I haven't fished here for a while.

Just would like to let everyone know that the public fishing pier has reopened. The work was done in a 2 day period rather than the planned 3 days. Fishing pier will be reopened for Thursday Sept 4th evening fishing. Also keep in mind there is a tube now in the water below the small enclosure that is hanging out of the water. This could be a potential broken line scenario if you get wrapped around it.

Thanks for understanding

To all who are making plans on fishing the Oak Creek Expansion Plant fishing pier the week of August 31st to September 6th 2014. The fishing pier will be closed to the general public part of this week. The actual dates that the pier will be closed is September 3rd, 4th and 5th. The pier should reopen on Saturday morning September 6th. There is a maintenance project going on that will possibly be a safety concern if the general public was to be on the pier at the same time. Signs will be posted at the entrance gate on Oakwood Road indicating that the fishing pier is closed. If bad weather occurs during this time, closure can be postponed to later dates or extend the closure as well. Sorry for this inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

Conditions: Partly Sunny
Fished the pier today from 1 till 5. Watched the west winds push out the discolored stale water and replace it with cool clear water. Big Smile Went 3 for 3, 2 browns and a rainbow. All on gold kastmaster and were left to grow some more. One of the browns was a german brown. Been a while since I'd caught one. Was only about 2 lbs. so it was either a result of a successful spawn or an out of state stock. Trying to get in as much fishing as I can in the next two weeks. After that it will be a while. Having my collar bone and shoulder blade removed and shoulder reconstructed. needs to be rehabbed before the fall king run!! Sweating

Thanks guys. Lately the catches (when the wind is right) have been consistently browns. Does this change as water temps increase as well?

And it becomes even more important as the general lake temps rise with summer and continue to be important until the water temps drop again in the fall.

You sir are correct.

Southwest is also a good wind! West winds=salmon and trout.

I've noticed that without a decent wind (5mph+) the action seems to drop considerably at the power plant.

I've also noticed that an East wind seems to effect the action as well.

Am I accurate in believing that a West wind 10mph+ would be the best wind for fishing off the Oak Creek power plant pier?

Any additional suggestions or thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks

What set up do you guys recommend? Braided or mono? What line test? What kind of rod and reel?

Fishing was slow on the Pier today due to increased water discharge. It is roaring compared to the last few days. The fish were big but the numbers were not like the other day. I watched one lady lose a fish that was defiantly a King. She faught it twice to the dock and we saw silver once then it spooled here on an unbelievable run toward Chicago. Someone should have told that fish that the Cubs play the Brewers here today. I caught a really nice Brown in the little time I spent there today. The Lakers were out in front in the dirty water. There was way too much current for the Zips today so I went with a deep diving rapala (firetiger / dirty water)and it was working on both Lakers and Browns. Did the same thing just pumped it in the current. The King was also lost on a very similar lure and presentation. Saw a cool thing yesterday... four -(approximately 48") Lake Sturgeon were in the shoot rubbing up against one another appearing as it they were spawning. There are also plenty of huge carp and shad for you fish watchers.

Ok so me and my brother went fishing 8 times before and never caught anything but then we decided to use rapala deep diver crankbaits they dove approx 6-10 feet and all of them were firetiger. so our first 15 min there boom my bro lands a 3-5 lb coho but as we are netting it the lure flies out of its mouth. then 5 min later he lands this massive 10-13 lb laker. it was huge!!!!!. then i caught really small 1.5 lb brown. but what you have to do is go to the end of the pier and let the curren take you lure then SLOWLY reel it in and every couple seconds give your rod a swift jerk.. If this helps you guys out please post results!!! Good Luck and Tighlines.
