Can anybody tell me where to find skips around the wickliffe, KY. area?
Looks like you are pretty close to Paducah. You can find the Shawnee Steam Plant there on the ohio river. Try fishing the hot water discharge and you should tear them up. There is a floating dock out front that you can climb onto according to some employees I talked to. You will have to access this by boat though as they will not let you onto plant grounds after 9/11. Nearest ramp is at Fort Massac State Park in Metropolis, IL, then a 4 mile run to the plant.
I think there may be other Steam Plants (or sometimes known as TVA Fossil Plants as they burn coal) near you. Just do a search on TVA'a website.
If you don't have a boat, the only place I know right now is Cumberland City but I am sure some locals will chime in here soon enough to help you out.
Hope this helps some!
The Shawnee Steam Plant would probably be your best bet
