no seriously teh best thing to do it get a boat and go on a cruise. look for treatment facilities and power plants. most the water coming out of those are 60 degrees.

Most of the discharges on the river are directly behind the plants with limmited access to them and boat is the only way to get to most of them... A lot of the power plants are off limmits since 9/11... I had a Army national gaurdsman aiming his M-60 at me (it was mounted on a Humvee) after 9/11 at Midlands plant with both my kids on board fishing by the power plant.... Their interpitation of 500 feet was differant than mine apparently....

funny thing to see, a 65-70 year old man with a ar-15 walking around like barney fife, its pretty comical. I get nervous around them guys

Most warm water discharges are from industrial entities and they're off limits from shoreline.... at least from my experience the signs say so and around the nuke plants the armed guards say so lol.... my boat gives me more access then the shore fishing folks....
