Re: Tellico River Drainage
Drove through on the 26th, in the afternoon and it was roaring high and dirty. I had fished the Hiwassee on Tuesday and early Wednesday and decided to head north when the boomers started rolling in. Since the Tellico was so high I decided to head over to the Citico and was amazed that it was not affected at all by all the rain from Tuesday night and wednesday morning. Was able to take several RB along Double Camp creek. I decided to try and head to Townsend and from the map it looked like the best route was to head to Citico Beach, cross at the Chilhowee Dam and take the Skyway into town. 50 miles total. Unfortunately the TVA didn't have the Itinerant angler in mind, and the dam was closed to traffic by a gate. D. I had to drive about 50 miles out of the way and rolled into Townsend about the time the boomers rolled in.
