    Many thanks to everyone!! No I didn't catch any today but I gave it a try anyway. Fished Millers Island from about 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm with nary a single bite

    Nevertheless, as the saying goes, a day attempting to fly fish is still better than a day raking leaves... or something like that.

    On the "Downstream Elevation" thing, turns out both Brett and I emailed TVA for the particulars about 24 hours apart and we're both waiting for an official response.

    Hugh, I should have known you'd have the most direct info... I'll check it out next time I make it up to the dam (almost made it today but I got side-tracked by Miller's Island this afternoon.

    Again, thanks for the kind thoughts

    Default Response from TVA

    A direct email in a quite timely fasion from TVA. Mr. Hartsell you never stop impressing me. However, both dad and I are puzzled on it taking 5 to seven hours to return to pre generation water levels! That seems rather inaccurate, but that's coming from being on the water and watching it fall out!

    The avg base elevation of the river bottom is 818' at the dam's base. So, you can subtract this amount from the observed amount to get a good idea of the depth of the water.

    Hope this helps.
