Water running out of
this pipe comes from a factory and is much warmer than the creek
it flows into. This attracts many species of fish year round.
You have warm water, plenty of oxygen, and plentiful food which
attracts bait fish and predators.
Fish will sit in the
warmer water just down stream from this discharge. Any type
of live bait dropped above the creek and allowed to flow into
the creek is sure to get hit. Plastics and other light lures
will work just as well.
Position your boat far enough away to avoid spooking the
fish. Since they spend a great deal of time in one spot, they
are very aware of their surroundings and your presence. A subtle
presentation is often necessary to entice them into striking
an artificial lure. Dropping a lure right into the falls will
often spook the fish into a good case of lock jaw.
