No fishing next week at APCO hydro site

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Starting Monday, the public fishing access at the Winfield Hydroelectric Project in Kanawha County will be closed.

The planned five-day closure announced by Appalachian Power is needed while a small structure is built for future water monitoring. The fishing area is scheduled to reopen on July 26, subject to weather and river conditions.

Public fishing access at the Marmet Hydroelectric Project nearby will remain open.

The Winfield power plant on the Kanawha River has three generating units.
