Flint Creek Power Plant and SWEPCO Lake
The 528-megawatt, coal-fueled Flint Creek Power Plant has been a mainstay of reliable and affordable power generation in fast-growing Northwest Arkansas for more then 30 years. SWEPCO Lake is popular, in part, for the sport fishing it provides. As water in the man-made 500-acre SWEPCO Lake cools the plant, it stays plenty warm for Florida bass, crappie and other species. This means year-round fishing for area anglers – and an abundant food supply for the magnificent American bald eagles that take up residence each winter.

SWEPCO is just plain awesome. It was catch n release up until a few years ago, now it has a 10 fish limit. Check before you go. It was nothing to go and catch up to 100 largemouth a day. Green pumpkin zoom finesse worms are the ticket. Drop trolling motor and start fishing. Easy to navigate. Check out discharge area when you go. Let us know how you do.
Thanks for the tip. Planning on heading up there Jan 8 and 9. Well let you know how I do.
