FISHING REPORT
4/14/15 1:05 AM CST
Drove down to the Power Plant for the first time today just to check things out. Ended up fishing from 4:15 pm to 5:00 pm, casting a perch-patterned spoon and a deep-diving chartreuse Rapala on all sides of the end of the pier. Didn't manage anything but it was nice to get out. Saw one guy leave with a nice brown trout and that was about it. Also found out I'm going to need to extend my net. Will try a little later when it is less windy. Big Smile

'Is the water up our down'

What does that mean?

I can tell you that the water flows from the power plant to Lake Michigan (Eastward)

Would this pier work for dip netting smelt? Has anyone ever tried it? Thanks, Brad

I was out on the pier this afternoon again. HORRIBLE day out there. The weather was very cold, and very windy. It was so windy that waves were going over the pier and pushing other waves into the discharge. The end of the pier was not fishable. Your lure would not cast out far enough because the wind was so strong, and you would get soaked from the large waves. The water was also very dirty. The only good spot was right at the water discharge, but there were like 5 guys fishing there.

fishslayer123 I got out on the pier yesterday in the afternoon and there were around 6 to over 10 people at a time on the pier. I'm guessing it will probably be most packed and busy on nice weekend days though when a lot of people are off work.

I was on the pier from 12-4pm today. I saw about 5 fish caught, all brown trout, mostly by the same guy. I tried green sac, wax worms, and lures and didn't get a bite.

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. They 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
