Typically without and spilling, two generators will not exceed 2,800 which is basically all the water they can push through the turbines and if that is the case, you have some wading options.
Don Denney who is a member of the Hiwassee Trout Unlimited Chapter and the webmaster of Hiwassee.net has posted some information regarding areas that can be waded during two turbine flow. This is the link to some of the areas he has listed. http://www.hiwassee.net/wade2.htm I will state that I have waded this river on two turbines many times and in a number of places not on Don's list. IF you decide to wade on two turbines, excersize caution and have a wading staff to help navigate the river.
God gave fishermen expectantcy so they would never tire of throwing out a line.
