Default Chilhowee Lake

FYI, Alcoa is going to fix the sinkhole in the dam this year. Starting on September 2nd they are going to be drawing the lake down about 20-25 feet. Should be completed by late 2008 or early 2009.

I've been wondering but I can't confirm this. Are we going to be able to fish the river? There are going to be a lot of fish concentrated in the old channel. Even if we can't fish, I am going to be spending some time over there looking around and taking pictures.

according to the news you still have "limited" access to the lake. I dont see how with a drop of 25 feet.
