    Default Raging WPLP 6-21

    Hello,

    I decided to take a drive to Smokies yesterday afternoon to relieve the Sunday blues in Maynardville Drove by the Little river and it was high, but fishable in some areas. I decided to check out the WPLP to see what effect the rains had on its flow. The pictures below were take at the Chimney Tops trailhead, well in around the first bridge that crosses the stream. Pretty awesome flows. Had to think a little before walking across the bridge, although it was holding up well.







    I don't think we'll have to worry about too much pressure on the WPLP in the near future In all seriousness, I would think that some of the young bows would not make it through these conditions. Road Prong was not as high and muddy as the Walker Camp Prong, so that side of the mountain must have bore the brunt of the storm.

    Here are a couple more pics in larger size.







    FYI, the second pic is Road Prong. As you can see, it's nowhere as high and muddy as the other prong.

    Under these conditions, the pressure might be coming from kayakers. Some were converging on the LPR Sunday PM.

    Great pics!

    If the link worked I have some video from yesteday at the Chimney's trailhead.
    Yeah, I was gonna TRY and wet a line at Road Prong but even it was blown out.
