I think they are partially powered down right now.  Some type of problem and are doing emergency repairs on...unless they are already done?

Thanks for the inside info Grin!

 thumbs up no prob dude. if any repairs it wasn't with the reactor. That thing is about 150' deep in the ground and surrounded by 5' of thick reinforced concrete. the ol' man is an armed guard there and i'm always asking him what's going on. I used to fish that area a lot too.

 Lol yep they all look pretty much the same on the inside. A little differnt on the out side between a pressurized water and boiling water reactor but all the same in the "can". Last tIme I checked Oct is the next schedualed refuel. Roadtech has a site for all refuels and  time frames

Oyster Creek is in Forked River/Lacey Township  where the Nuclear Power Plant is located.  It runs under Route 9 on the border of Waretown(Ocean Township).  You can only fish east of Route 9, west of Route 9 is the power plant's property.

Northern most part is the inflow used to cool the Power Plant.  Nothing special fishing in there.  The southern most part of the Creek is the outflow after it has cooled the Plant and is very warm water.  Fish love it and it produces year 'round when the seasons are open.
