Just got off the river .slow day , no sulfurs and although i had no thermometer, the water felt very warm. fished the church area.I'm concerned if they keep this generation the ecosystem may be affected...any body notice the same?

I haven't been on it, but Jeff told me that it was as low as he had ever seen it, and this is an idiotic move this time of year.

It seems like common sense, but why on earth would they choose late Spring early summer as the best time to clean out the weir? Why not do it in late fall, winter, or early spring when this wouldn't be an issue?

Another example of brilliance in government.

This sexy girl I met at church today respectfully disagrees with your hypothesis. :biggrin:

I couldn't agree more, perhaps next year the dumb asses wont be opening the gates in fear of a flood so early. It's all about power and keeping the Yankees happy

Keep that up and you will need a bigger net! Nice fish.

OK, so it's low. Did anybody bother to throw a thermometer on it and compare to recent weeks? It was sure cold when my big butt did a backwards boogie into the river this AM!

I certainly didn't, I was on the water but a long way from the Clinch.

Interesting stuff happening in this state currently....

Turkey season is over, what could you possibly be doing now? HA

Fished 2 mondays ago and ran into Buzz and he thought the weir was blocked. He made a call and sure enough it was. Water should be in better shape shortly.

Hard to say, it does involve water and fish. Not in a sexual way though.
