Default Spilling on the Clinch

Is there any update on how much longer TVA will be spilling on the Clinch? Any idea when they will go back to one generator or none?

I viewed the TVA website data and it appeared that the flow will be slowly decreasing the next two days.

I recall something say TVA would be spilling for 10 days. I don't remember exactly when they opened them up, but that 10th day is near

I do not mean to "steal this thread" but...being a fisherman new to the clinch I was wondering how does this unusual release of water over the past few weeks effect the fishing?

They did it last year too, and we had a phenomenal sulfur hatch. Unfortunately, it wasn't this late in the year if I remember correctly. Everything should be okay though.

Everything should be fine with the fishing, they aren't spilling a ton of water right now. However that could change.

I would say the spilling will continue for a while, looking at this beast which is coming in the next few days, I don't see any way that they will back off anytime soon.

It doesn't bother me, turkey season is in, and when it ends the fish will be unmolested for me

Thanks Pineman

Too bad I can't make it for a few days! Hopefully this wekend, perhaps I bump into you there..

Hugh H reports on his site that he did well recently at Nance's between generation cycles.

The Cherokee tailwater is nice and wide; reminds me of the rivers I enjoyed the most in New England. Can't wait.
