Default Re: Tennessee Trout Mgmt Plan

Rusty,

I'll have to think about that one for a while.

I heard some disturbing news about the Cumberland today though I can't back it up. Evidently there is a problem with the dam. If what I heard is correct and I understood the information they may have to lower Lake Cumberland to a point 10 feet below winter pool. That would mean that the water flowing into the tailwater would be warm and it may stay that way for a long time while repairs are made. If that's true, the tailwater would no longer be a coldwater fishery. Has anyone heard about this? Talk about economic impact, not just to the tailwater but to the people trying to make a living on the lake. I've also heard about new leaks in Center Hill Dam. Anyone know about that? These dams are getting old. I'm concerned!

Byron
