DALE’S MAILBAG

Chicago Sun-Times - - OUTDOORS -

‘‘I just read an ar­ti­cle re­gard­ing the clo­sure of the Dres­den power plant in Novem­ber of 2021. Does Ex­elon/the state have any plans to open it to fish­ing or ideas on fish­ery man­age­ment that you know of?’’ — Nathan Le­siecki

A: Le­siecki was one of sev­eral read­ers who won­dered some­thing sim­i­lar. Like other an­glers, I gazed on those Dres­den waters with un­bri­dled lust. In past decades, there have been dis­cus­sions within the Illi­nois Depart­ment of Nat­u­ral Re­sources about shore­an­gling pos­si­bil­i­ties, but it did not hap­pen. I also think ComEd and the state are in a high-stakes poker game on Dres­den.
