What is the difference in regulations between army corps and the tva????? .....they should work in the same rules, well maybe except for the baureacratic (B.S.)...... I woould like to see them in .5 ft of navigable waterways..!


It is bureaucratic BS basically. Army Corp has different standards then TVA and manages for different purposes. TVA manages for Hydro as well as recreational usage as well and tries to maximize both. If you notice, none of the Corp dams have any sort of beneficial improvements done to better the fisheries. While many of the TVA waterways do. Such as; Weir Dams on South Holston and Norris, as well as hub baffles on each to provide more D.O.. Also Cherokee has an oxygen injection thing in place to assist with the same purpose as the hub baffles, but they disconnected it because of the greedy striper guys on the lake. The weir dams are designed to keep a minimum flow as well as provide more D.O.

This is not accurate. The Caney is a corps dam and they have installed hub baffles, along with the orifice sluice installation that is planned for 8/4. Long term, there has been talk about a house unit or turbine bypass for minimum flow purposes as well (though I don't know if the orifice sluice supplants that).

The reason there's no wier on the Caney has nothing to do with whether it's a Corps or TVA dam. It's a matter of gradient - i.e., the river elevation doesn't drop far enough fast enough for a wier to be effective.

Actually the weir dam was going to be installed on our property just below the dam.They came and did extensive core drilling but i heard it wasn't the gradient the just ran out of money because of the expence of the saddle dam fuse plug they installed wound up costing more that they thought.Who really knows when it comes to the corps.

I think there should be a limit on jet skis. Maybe 10 per day. You have to have a Sportsman's license to shoot more than that.


Some people that ride wave runners carry guns also. ;\)

Prolly true, but a wet gun doesn't always do its job. On the other hand, most people don't take into account current speed when leading a waverunner. A turkey choke will blow your average jetskier away, but the pattern is too tight for the incredible speed these suckers generate these days. And then again, your average wader can't exactly dive for cover without floating his floppy hat. Could be a pretty fair fight.

I am, to the surprise of no one, a bit old fashioned. When it comes to jet skis, I still use my old 3/4 ounce jig on 60# line. At 30 yards, a lead of about six feet will either impact or provide plenty of room to set the hook.

As to weir dams,

No. I better not tell that one.

Honestly, I have been blown away by the traffic on the Caney Fork, especially this weekend... I've been paddling that river heavily for about 8 years, and it has gradually escalated to all this... I always thought the Caney Fork had everything I needed but women, even that is looking promising lately...

Out of curiosity, has anyone ever seen a game warden downstream from betty's?


Brent- Just thought of this. One of them camped on your dad's farm one weekend probably about the time you were born. For all I know, he may still be there. He is now retired from TWRA but at one time, he was a regular to the gravel bar on your place and claimed the water between your place and the mine was the best stretch on the river.
