I have fished every little cut and eddy on the south side of the river from Wilson dam down to O'Neal bridge and I grew up in Florence. However, I didn't know that used to be a steam plant intake. I always thought it had something to do with the construction of the dam or with Diamond Shamrock which used to be in that area.
In any case, yes, I have fished it and would have tried there and a few other places, but since I was on the bank I didn't feel like making the long hike to get there. (grin)
Good luck and good fishin'
There are huge piles of "something" above that area. It looks like grey sand, but I don't know exactly what was dumped and possibly is still being dumped there. With the chemical and fertilizer plants that were in that area, who knows what it might be?
