Stray Casts will intelligently report and observe, hopefully with a touch of wit, on daily occurrences, reports and releases related to Chicago-area outdoors from bucks to bass to birds to bugs

Powerton Down

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Mokena fisherman Bill Anderson just called to say Powerton Lake is shut for levee repair.

I called site super Stan Weimer, who said the cooling lake outside of Pekin is closed indefinitely for levee repair, but he added, ``Hopefully the boat opener will be a go.''

Powerton was scheduled to open for boat fishing, as traditional, on Feb. 15. And, especially with a Friday opener, this is one of those winters where there would be more interest than usual in open-water fishing.

I will have updates, both here and in the usual outdoor pages in Wednesday and Sunday Sun-Times.
