I've heard the Sluiceway was still producing as of Friday (didn't read any weekend reports one way or the other). As far as Millstone, I haven't fished that since 2000, which was the last year you could due to 9/11. That was from shore and as you said, the fishing was quite phenominal. From a boat, you can still access it to a point...but there is a marked area which you cannot fish inside of and from what I understand, it's a fair distance from the actual outflow (but perhaps someone could correct or clarify how far that distance is). The upside is that occasionally, the albies do roam pretty far from that outflow and out to where you are allowed to fish (the water is still pretty warm a fair distance away from the powerplant). But my experience (which is minimum there) is that more times than not, those fish will hold right in the outflow. While I miss that fishery, I believe in the course of action being taken to secure our safety.
