Dunkirk harbor warm water discharge

Recommended Posts

Wondering if its worth it to take trip down with the 9 year old. I hear its open water but not sure what to fish for. Probably toss some crocadiles.

Mark - this time of year is usually a pretty decent coldwater fishery. Try some smaller casting spoons like the 1/3 oz. little cleos or Swedish Pimples and maybe some inline spinners like Panther Martins, rooster tails, etc. for steelhead and/or browns. From shore, you can fish either from the fishing platform near the power plant or from the pier. From a boat, find a good spot where the warm water is mixing with the colder harbor water, or perhaps where the gulls are feeding on minnows and cast around there. Good luck.

My 10 year old nephew consistently catches some pretty good size shad off the pier all winter long. For a young kid, it keeps there level of interest in terms of catch and release.

I also take my kids there a couple times a year. dead stick a minnow with a slip bobber seems to be the preffered method for steelies but slow winding spoons for the kids will deff keep them occupied with the shad although i have never seen a legit hookup
