Ok if this works right the link should take you to a closeup of our power plants riverbank.I am guessing the water output shown is heated water discharge.I am think the big round thing at the edge of the current created would be the best place to hit.

Give me some input also if you scroll the map following the river northwest the place I bank fish is about a mile from there.

Nw of the powerplant or downstream where the big creek comes in is where I do most of my fishing.Also 90% of the time the rivers level fluctuates less than 3 ft high or low because of the barge traffic its kept at a fairly equal lvl.

Right in the white water where discharge meet's the river and right and left of it.
Then behind mooring pylon and any pylon you can fish going downstream. Then the creek mouth then both side's of the first big downsream bend.

I agree on the creek thing. If you've got +3 ft of water in that creek, they'll be there at night looking for food. I've caught a LOT of flatheads less than 10' from the bank in less than 6' of water. Suspend a 6"-10" bluegill on a 8/0 circle hook (bobber, bobber stop, egg sinker, bead, barrel swivel,8"-10" leader, hook) about half way down to the bottom. (6' water=suspend 2'-3') JUST downstream from a log, snag, etc. They like to lay where the current is broken up, not work so hard to ambush the target. I use the biggest THILL suspending type bobber they make. Be stealthy, don't be stomping around on the bank, throw stuff in water, campfire going, etc. And most of all, HAVE PATIENCE!! :cool2:

I agree with the creeks. I would hit them at night. If you are going out during the day, I would try the back side of the moorings and any deeper holes you can find. Especially if they are near that discharge.

The first spot that that I would check out if I was to go there, would be the first bend just downstream of the powerplant/dam. I would look for a scour hole and hopefully some submerged structure near the transition of that hole.
