    No, I haven't fished at all anywhere. But Bull Run Steam Plant has been running hot water again for just 3-4 days. It will take the baitfish and bigger fish a few more days to find the warm water. So things oughtta pick up over there. It isn't exactly Knoxville, but it's just a couple miles from the Knox County line. Stripers, white bass, yellow perch, and muskies should be the first fish drawn in there. The catfish should become more active downstream from the steam plant in some deeper water.
