    Default COFFEEN POWER PLANT CLOSING (& 3 Others statewide)-!!!!!!

    Four Illinois Coal-Burning Power Plants Closing | Peoria Public Radio





    Devastating news for the local communities as well as fisherman everywhere! the Winter time fun is over!! Horrible news for Crappie & Bass Anglers. One of THE best Crappie lakes in the state will be no more! RIP COFFEEN! Sad to see such a amazing fishery go!

    If it's like everything else the government does it will be 5 years before if/when it happens.
    A person should learn something new every day!

    the lake will still be open to fishing, just no more warm water discharge which makes coffeen just another lake, no longer year round growth for the fish. it is/was Truly a unique cold weather warm water fishery.
