    well when ur standing at the boat dock looking on to tha lake u can walk right or left,left will take u to hot water,and right will take u toward the fresh water flush from tha kaski.but trust me its a long walk,and im not sure if u can walk all the way down there.anywhere just right of the dock will be ur best bet.

    Good to know. How about in a boat? Close to the power plant is good?

    I've only been out there once, but if you are in a boat.. head to the right from the boat ramp.. go down past the peninsula.. just try to find deep holes and anchor up above them.. there are some nice fish in there for sure and just a ton of small ones..

    Is the theromocline problematic at Baldwin?
