    I also look at the scheduled flows that TVA shows for the Great Falls dam since it will directly affect how much they are going generate at Center Hill.

    Thanks, Joel
    Joel,

    How does a guy read the dang thing? Thanks

    BlueRaider, If I understand the NOAA site correctly it simply gives you an average for the day. But, that could be an average of generation and sluicing. For example, if you look at Percy Preist on NOAA and it shows 3 and then look at the TVA water release schedule, you will see they are letting a constant 3000cfs over Priest. Thus, the 3 average on the NOAA site. As for the precipitation amounts, you need a secret decoder ring to figure out what locations those letters stand for. Silvercreek

    Here is what I think the report is telling us:

    .B MEM 1109 C DH06/DC1109/DRD+1/QTIF/DRD+2/QTIF/DRD+3/QTIF
    .B1 DRD+4/QTIF/DRD+5/QTIF
    :5-DAY DISCHARGE FORECASTS
    WLCK2 4.0/ 4.0/ 4.0/ 4.0/ 4.0:WOLF CREEK DAM
    DAHT1 1.6/ 1.6/ 1.6/ 1.6/ 1.6: DALE HOLLOW
    CEHT1 2.5/ 2.5/ 2.5/ 2.5/ 2.5:CENTER HILL

    The date after MEM is the starting point...in this case Nov 9 (1109). The 5 day forecast would be for 11/10 through 11/14. The numbers for each day indicate the average cfs (in thousands) flowing through the dam. In this case, it looks like Center Hill will be flowing (on average) at 2500 cfs (as depicted by 2.5 on the report). Looks like the sluice will be on 24/7 with 1 generator kicked on for about 4 hours each day. The sluice is equivalent to 1.8 and 1 generator is equivalent to 3.8 on the report....after that its just a math exercise.

    Called around the Corps today to see if there was a site that gave hour by hour predicted sluicing in addition to generation. The answer was no. A lady at the Corps said that Center Hill would be sluicing 1 gate (1600-1800cfs) until December. The Corp site under fishing info for Center Hill also says they will be sluicing one gate until further notice. Buy a boat is you are going to fish the Caney anytime soon.

    Thanks, I may have to just keep wading in the deeper water. The sluicing wasn't so bad that I was in danger. It did stink having to wade out in waste deep water. Maybe I can find an old inner tube

    BlueRaider, Be careful out there. A couple years ago a guy drowned at Happy Hollow when he stepped off into a hole. You may want to seriously consider a life jacket. Regards, Silvercreek

    Yeah, if I can't see the bottom, I don't take a step. I had to wait in a couple of spots for several minutes for sediment to clear.

    BRF, if you need a fishing buddy, give me a holler. I need my fish for November and would prefer to get a trout this time. It's always good to have a partner when wading conditions are sketchy.

    In other news, I made the MTSU paintball team on Sunday!

    BigPopper (Mark) and I are going a week from Saturday, you're welcome to come. Post and remind me though. I'm a forgetful old codger. Congrats on making the team!
