FISHING REPORT
4/22/14 12:18 PM CST
Conditions: Sunny Air Temp: 46° - 50° F Water Temp: 40° - 45° F
13 fish, 8 Coho, 5 Browns, 2.5 hours, all on Zips. My boat with bad kicker is still being worked on so I was "jonesing" for time on the water. I took a stroll down to the Pier yesterday to see the best spots taken, but plenty of fish being caught off the end. Guys were fishing cranks in the current. Today I decided to take another approach with Zips,just like we had been scoring them in big numbers in the boat. It was the ticket! Browns were up in the whitewash off the discharge and Coho and Browns were at the end of the Pier in good numbers today. Make a long cast, hold the Zip in the current and lift and pause, lift and pause. Check for slime occasional. There were very few people there today due to the NE wind and cold. I came "unprepared for class" today (normal me even in College)with no net. Thanks to the guys who netted my fish. Hope the Zips work for you. Take a look at how empty the Pier was today with the cold and wind.

Title of the thread is "Oak Creek power plant fishing pier"

Are you serious about wanting to know what city its in? I'm gonna assume you were joking and move on. Smile

Yes it is privately owned, but its open to and built for public usage. Direct your attention to the posts and read through the pages, you don't have to look far. You will find the street its on just 4 posts below yours and detailed directions just a single post below that.

There are options once you are there, so you won't be pinned down to one tactic, you can fish the top, turbulent water, or the fast "false river", which is fairly deep, or you can fish the lake at the end of the pier as well, where you can cast into the discharge or out towards the lake.

As for baits, its no different than anywhere, spoons, crankbaits, tubes, gulp, spawn, minnows, etc., even worms all take fish at times. Again, this info is in the pages of the thread.

The two times I have walked down this spring it was a zoo. The other day when I walked down it was shoulder to shoulder (busier than fall) and nothing being caught. I saw browns, but not what I consider a lot IME. Many decent sized carp down there though fooling a few people.

Obviously you will need a long handled net. Good luck if you give it a shot, Oak Creek is a nice place. Wink

I've never heard of this place outside of lake link, and have no clue where it is. I've read reports about rules and its private and such and it all seems interesting. Especially the fishing. It'd be nice to get away from my usual spring fishin and test my luck here for a day. Maybe a few pointers would be nice. For starters what city is it in? Haha thanks for any help guys.

I'm new to this kind of fishing... What do people use on bobbers fishing in the discharge? Or what kind of hard baits?

The water clarity in the discharge should remain clear, the water that is discharged is actually taken in at a distance of 1-1/2 miles out in the lake in 42 feet of water. This water is very clear. Fishing out at the end of the pier might be a different story due to the very strong East winds and water clarity is very limited. The better fishing has been up further closer to the discharge. Good fishing!

Likely will. Use brighter colors. Coho seem to like the bright greens and oranges anyway.

Directions to power plant. Take Ryan road east until it ends. Take a right. Go to the first stop light (forget the road name) and go left. That will take you to the power plant entrance (gate), turn right and follow the road to the pier. Good luck! Smile

Any thought on if the wind and waves on Friday will mess up the water clarity to much for Saturday?

I was out on the pier on the first. Got my limit; 4 browns and a coho; 7 until 10am. There were 8-10 people in the morning. No one was catching them like crazy though I'd say most everyone got a least a couple. I've been doing really well from a boat, just thought I'd take a break from hauling the boat out and the wind was crazy... though West. There was one young guy netting outside the railing... big no no! For you guys fishing the pier, that's a huge privilege, not a right. Don't ruin it for everyone.
