PostSubject: Tuckahoe inn fishing   Thu Mar 03, 2011 5:47 pm

Anyone fished the route 9 bridge near the Tuckahoe Inn? All those pilings and warmer water have to be killer on the outgoing. I've been reading up on the place all day, but I've never fished it myself. I have learned that the water is roughly 15* warmer by Federal Law coming out of the plant. Sorting through all of the info it sounds like the fish like to be in areas that maintain a steady temp just outside of the main flow. Some people have said that those temp fluctuations and extremes might kill the fish and I think they might be right???

Either way, the water should be a bit warmer and the fishing a bit more active. I think I might try it in a week or so.

I don't think 15 degrees is really enough to harm the fish. Plus you have to remember that when they dump that water it instantly mixes with the colder water so the increase isn't nearly as much. A couple degrees is all it takes though.

It's a fishy area. Never really had any luck very close to the plant though.

I have fished that area alot in my early days, back before the cooling tower! That place was unreal with shrimp hatches, like you wouldn't believe! Some of the best weakie fishing I've ever had the pleasure to experience! It was the place I always caught my 1st fish of the season. The bridges are still hot at night under the lights! And the bass still stage at the mouth of 3 rivers. The area gets hammered by jet skis when the water warms up, due to the rental place right there! Night time is the right time for bass and weakies. It is also an early fluke spot! Flounder alley is a great drift! The perchin was off the charts in the warm flow last time I tried! If you go, think small shrimp, if they are discharging. Back in the day there wasn't any gulp, we used these tiny plastic grass shrimp that only Scotts B&T in Mystic carried. every winter I would go up there and get my herring jigs and grass shrimp! A casting float with the small shrimp on small jig was killer...JG

That's great information Gannet and welcome to the forum! I hope we can all wet a line together soon.

When fishing in the spring, I'm a firm believer in Grass Shrimp!

The best part was drifting through the steam rising off the water, it used to be HOT like 78*, you knew right where they would be! The visual was great, with the lights of the bridge in the distance through the steam! I still have dreams about it. Drifting through the red steam of sunrise catchin weakies and the colors they would reflect is a highlight of my yak fishing memories! Cool It's also what made me want to learn how to tie the Ultra Shrimp and buy my 1st fly rod Razz Thanks for askin, brought back some great times.. Paddler PS coming to the dark side this year cherry

I fish from that launch quite often. I have fished the Rt 9 a couple of times at night but with no lights I did not have much luck. I have see guys on top of the bridge catch 1 every now and then. It should be a great spot for Tog during the day. Plenty of fallen concrete below.
