    Heskett plant

    I wonder if it would be possible to put a boat ramp in after they close heskett down? It would be nice to not have to drive 14 miles south of town to use a public boat ramp on the mandan side

    They aren't closing heskett, they are converting the second unit to natural gas.

    I tried Heskett over the weekend! Water was much lower than I thought it would be, still pretty cool temp too. Spent about 90 minutes trying cranks and jigs and got nothing to show for it. There's way more garbage down there than fish right now. Disappointing

    95% of what's there will undoubtedly be torn down so much of that area will become open although still owned by the power company I would assume. Not sure how much push there would be to have a second ramp on the same point in the river. It does have that nice little bay just downstream of the riprap. Biggest problem may well be the lack of room between the ramp and the train tracks as well as the substantial amount of dirt that would have to be removed .

    Right now yes in the future no.
