    Hey slikk, I fished Powerton less than 2 weeks ago. I pulled a 28lb blue and an 18lb blue out of the warm water discharge area, not to mention 1-3lb channels all day.

    I did a good deal of research before I went, and there is no doubt that monsters can be pulled out of Powerton (the proof can be seen via pictures at the local baitstore . . . Tom's baitstore or something like that)

    I plan on going back some time this season. See the articles below:
