I can only offer my own personal observations from my experience fishing the Caney Fork...but they have done me well over the past couple years...and I figure the same ideas would apply to other Tailwaters...

The water begins to rise at Happy Hollow roughly 2 hrs after generation begins...

At Betty's Island it's around 3 hrs...

And at Congo Bottoms its around 4 hrs...but don't misjudge this one b/c you can easily get stuck...

Now I don't claim to be an expert on how long it takes the water to fall, but based on trial and error from when I first started fishing the river, I've found that 6 hours is a good estimate. I think the water falls faster closer to the dam and slower the further downstream...

If I am wrong, please please please someone point out my mistake, as it will certainly allow for more fishing time in the future...
