Default Clinch??

Been waiting for someone else to ask this question for a few weeks now, so I figured I'd go ahead...
I heard there was a fire, malfunction, or something not good that happened to one of the generators at Norris Dam. Does anyone have the full story? More importantly, however, when can I fish there again (without swimming or floating)?
Thanks again-
Jamie

I heard something happened, but never heard what exactly it was. Whatever the case it is steady 1 generator. I wish it would turn off a little soon, before turkey season.

Same here, I am itching to get over there again.

Jamie, sorry I missed you and Ben on Saturday. Sounds like you all had some luck. I am worried about the Norris dam and any fix in the near future with all the problems TVA has in Roane county. Maybe the damage done by the fire is not major?

Didn't consider the Kingston mess. I bet by the time they turn the generator off, the fish will have forgotten what a fly is and we can catch 'em on size 2 chernobyl ants and mouse patterns off the top. Or, we can start a carpool up to Bristol. Maybe lobby for a speed train like they got in China. Now that's a ramble

The kingston mess has zero to do with Norris. Two different teams of people working on each problem.

Soon TVA won't have a choice and will turn it back to start filling the lake for Summer. All this water just gives the fish another little while to grow bigger, and dumber for the days when the water is off.

If we don't get any monsoons in the next few weeks, I bet you will see a once every 6 hour pulse regime begin.
