How does September 27th sound? That will give people plenty of time to make arrangements if coming from the west side and give some time for others to join in if they are on the fence to come or not. The generating schedule will be 1 generator from 10am to 1pm and then 2 generators from 1pm to 4pm. If we put in at Miller's Island and get to the launch at 11am to 1130am, we can pretty much float the whole river down to the 61 bridge in a timely fashion.


Sept. 27 is opening day of the deer season, which might cut down the crowd a little.

I'm curious on how you know what the generation schedule is over a month in advance. I'm doing good to know 15 hrs ahead of time for the Caney.


I didn't know that as I don't bow hunt. Would that be an issue for those that are interested in going?

Thanks for the link! I use the TVA generation schedule info, but hadn't seen that. I will use it to have some idea on what the schedule is supposed to be. But, the highlighted part on the schedule being subject to change due to rain and other operating conditions would keep me from making hard and fast plans a month in advance.

Great idea & would love to go but opening day might be a problem...how about the 20th...the Saturday before. I'll also be able to take a passenger.

Opening weekend is a definite no go for me. Weekend before should be fine. I'm willing to occupy a spot in a boat if someone has the room.

Lol the 27 the is a no go. Well I prob won't make it this year anyway cause I work Saturdays, need money for deer season and can't bring my boat if I hitch a ride. Maybe in the future

The 20th won't work for me. We have children's birthdays to go to that day. Maybe we can figure something out. The weekends are the best to plan a float because of the recreational release schedule. I don't think I've ever seen them unexpectedly change the schedule in the 15+ years I've been going up there.

How about the 13th. That is 3 weeks away and should give anyone interested time to make plans.
