    Slickk, if you are talking about a power plant warm water discharge, then this may help. I fish them on the bottom almost exclusively. You can catch fish at times right on the bank there. fishing in a discharge is no different than any other water, sometimes the fish are there and other times they are not. One thing, when the water temps in the main body of water the discharge runs into drop, the fishing will usually turn on in them. If the discharge has a lot of current or a good current break, then you may find skippies there. Good Luck. Vern
