Jon Stein, fisheries biologist with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, fishes for black bass Feb. 17 2017 at Swepco Lake near the hot water discharge from the Flint Creek Power Plant west of Gentry. Water is drawn from the lake in the process of making electricity, then discharged back into the lake at a temperature of about 100 degrees. That keeps water temperature warm all winter.
