Does anybody know a current surface temp for Center Hill on the lower end near the dam?

I know as of 9/12 it was running 80 or 81 degrees, but I'm hoping it's dropped some since then.

That's pretty good for this time of year. Usually you can get all that info on line.

Trying... I've struck out on anything up to date so far.

Rain should have cooled it to mid 70's

0700 to 1500 - 1 generator. I would envision this for a few days at least.

What's that going to do to the Mississippi Caney?

Not only are they running 1 generator, but they've also got the sluice wide open and running 1,800 cfs around the clock. With the level at 629.9-something, I'd expect them to keep this up at least until the weekend.

Looks like they have plenty of cold water left in the lake running 60 degrees today. Hope they don't waste all the sluice water. 65 degrees is plenty cold for those fish and makes them grow faster anyway.....

Brian do you have any temp data for the Cumberland? I may be running up that way very soon.

I have been trying to get some reliable "official" temps for the Cumby but I haven't been successful.

What I've learned so far is that the water at the turbine intake and the hatchery intake is running around 70, which is bad, but the sluice water is apparently still in the high 50s to 60. Water quality on the lake side is terrible - they've even had some mussel kills due to no DO.

The increase on the possession limits may have been partially about clearing fish out of the hatchery, since they can't operate it with a lot of fish if the intake water is 70 degrees with poor oxygen. Media and rumor were reporting that the tailwater itself was getting into that temp range, but I think now that this was inaccurate.

If the sluice water is close to 60, I'm sure it's been getting too warm by the time it gets down to Crocus Creek and Burkesville (at least on past hot days before this rain hit). However, I'd think it ought to be okay at least as far down as Rock House and Winfrey's.

That said, I don't know if I'd bother with the Cumberland right now. I wish you luck if you go, but I think I'm going to skip it this year. I know some folks who spend a LOT of time on that river and know it a whole lot better than I do, and even they have found the fishing rough this year. I'm not driving 2.5 hours to the Cumby when the "gurus" on that river are having 10 fish days with nothing over 14".

I had heard the same thing about the fishing as well and the temps. I was just thinking that the water temps might concentrate the mock spawners. Those big fish are in the river and not going to die easily. I imagine they are going to swim until they find the temps they like and that may be into a lot fewer river miles than years past like 90% fewer. Might look like a salmon run this year. I wonder if a state record may fall this year.

Thursday the surface temp there was 74-76. It has rained since then though so it may even be a couple degrees cooler. After next week it should start dropping.
