Any word on how the fish are biting? I've never fished there and didn't know if it was worth the 3 hr drive. 

Any tips or info is much appreciated. Thank you.

Powerton has been very good bite the past few weeks but the past few days it has slowed down. First day i have been skunked out there all year was today. I did talk to some guys that had about the same luck other than a big 55 pounder.

Had Powerton practically to myself yesterday before the football game. Couple other guys catfishing when I arrived, but they packed up and left. Another group of guys throwing spoons near the discharge and doing well on white bass. I fished 3/4 of the way down the peninsula on the discharge side. Lots of tiny threadfin shad caught with the cast net, but no bigger gizzard shad. Just one fish hit my bait in the several hours I was there. 26" blue catfish, looked healthy and released to get bigger for someone else to catch. Trash along shore was disheartening, but no worse than usual for Powerton.

Fished today from 12-2 right near the hot water discharge for some smallmouth. Ended up landing 4 on a crank bait. Wasn't much size to them but still fun especially for the middle of the winter.

When to Powerton for the first time Friday, water was 69-80 degrees. Fished around the entire lake an caught 8 smallies and a couple little cats. All fish caught on cranks and plastics fishing the rock shoreline. Cook cutter 17"ers, some of the skinniest smallies I have seen.
