Buy a map and look for blue. Anywhere a public bridge crosses the water should be ok to get in for a bit.

Winter striper fishing, I once read, is good around the discharge at the Bull Run power plant. They congregate in the warm water to feed on the baitfish that come in there. I looked for it on my map but couldn't locate the power plant. Maybe someone else can help.
Edit: Did a search on the TVA site; power plant is near Oak Ridge. Look where State Route 170 crosses the Clinch River.
