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.

Last spring, if I recall correctly, they had to keep it closed past march 15 because there was still So much ice in the pier

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.

This a message from plant management at Elm Road Generating Station. On November 15th at sundown, the fishing pier at Elm Road Generating Station will come to a close for the year. The pier will reopen at sunrise on March 15th 2015. Plant management would like to thank all those fishing the pier in 2014 for obeying all the posted rules and being safe. Thank you and see you in 2015

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.

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?
