couple of weeks back I finally met, fished and paddled with "Mighty River" great guy, if you ever get to spend the day on the water with him, will be time well spent.

mighty river = wndeagle on this website, and thanks again for sharing your day and your knowledge of the river elk riverrat!

i took my wife to the elk on friday, and was disappointed at the condition of the water. lots of algae and slime, and a raw sewage odor that was very strong. only one fish to hand all afternoon, my worst day there ever.

i guess it's all due to lack of generation because of the drought. are the other tailwaters experiencing the same?

the caney has been wide open for nearly two weeks. it would be nice if the tva could send a pulse through the elk a time or two a week just to push the slime out. the duck is fishing well, but there are very few,if any, fish over 14"
