    Thanks for this. Crockett and I were thinking of getting the canoe out, but this has changed my mind for me...

    Matt,
    I meant to put it up a day earlier when one of my TVA Buddies sent me an email about it. It might be interesting fishing after the sluicing stops at 2pm? I will be curious how the fish will act with a drastic ecosystem change like this...I know many of the striper guides are planning on running the gauntlet tomorrow. I would say that this will trap many of them in a few of the deep holes. I know the refraction of the water distorts size; but, I could almost testify that I saw 2-3 striper in the range of 4-5' in length yesterday. I saw them in a very odd location too. Not the normal holding area they usually shelter at during low flow...

    Also; the sauger have moved up and started holding in a few trout areas. Those guys will not hit anything.
