I agree with David's philosophy for trying to get an idea on when there may be some opportunities for wading-especially for this time of year.
Also; most of the releases this time of year are guided by the computer projections and not adjusted by human operators. This starts to change when the recreational releases start and if there are any anomalies in the queue.
I expect that February will be pot marked with a few wading opportunities on the Clinch. However; many of the low flows will be extended low cfs rates and not many opportunities to wade or red-eye start-ups. This should change after the first week of March.
