Does anybody know of a power plant lake in Arkansas? Preferably in north Arkansas. I live like a hour south of Norfork and bull shoals. I would really like try one. I'm not sure if Dardanelle is one or not?

Did a google search on the first subject that popped up was SWEPCO lake by Flint Creek power plant.

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.

I saw that one too. It's a little far but in a couple weeks I'm thinking of making a road trip out there. I didn't see if they have any boat or motor restriction. I would hate to drive that far and not put my boat in it. But I found a marina phone number I well give a call before I head that way. But thank for the research.

Has anyone on here ever fished Swepco lake before? I'm planning a trip up there after the first of the year. I can't find a lot on info on it. Found one U-tube clip on it and that's about it. Can't really find any resent fishing reports on it. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

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.
