    Hey fellas, do any of you live near or fish the power plant lake in Clinton often? I live in the Champaign area, actually just recently moved up here, and talked to someone about the fishing over there recently. I was told they have the lake stocked with some monster strippers and what really caught my attention was that there apparently are some big flattys in there. I would love to get some information on the lake because I have never been over there and am contemplating a weekend trip. If any of you guys fish this lake and need some company just let me know. I'm always looking for new fishin buddies. You can never have too many :wink:

    Thanks,
    Ryan

    Doyle and cats4uandme (Jeremy) hit Clinton quite regularly..
    Click the search button up there and search for Username Doyle. He does a great job of posting a report when he goes, or giving out some good info on where to fish it...

    I would but I have a rule of not fishing with anyone uglier than me (you'll scare the fish!). LOL, thats only about 15 minutes for neoga. I can probably help you guys get your lines out sometime. I doubt that its really gonna pick up or another month or so though.

    I need to get back down there and fish. Hard to believe it's been a whole year since I've been to Clinton Lake. The last time we pulled in 3 little channels, after fighting a 20 mph wind just to get across the lake.
