    I see a lot of them jumping on the main channel about them dam all the time, but many many many guys fish for them around the Gallitan Steam Plant. I mark them on the sonar all the time in the channel wackin shad so their in there.

    In the wintertime the discharge at the Gallatin Steamplant is as good as it gets. In the sring and summer months the intake channel is really good. Also you can go up river about 8 miles from there and find a long island named Cunninghams island and the stripers hold in 70' water in the summers hottest months. Hope this helps!:big_smile:

    All I've caught so far this year has been stripers. I've only been able to go 3 times, and everytime I've loaded up on stripers. They are plentiful around Gallatin. I was on Lock 4 Road at one of the rec areas. Hope that helps. Have a great time!:wink:
