I just got back from Center hill dam about 15 min ago and the orfice gate is installed and they have the sluece gate opened.They opened it around 11:45 am.They told me they were going to run it the rest of the day.It oly is Having an outflow of 200 cubic feet per sec.Just thought you fellows would like to know.I am going down to the river to see how much it rises and what the current is going to look like.See ya.Will report later.

Here is what I saw.It might have raised the river between 3 to 5 inches.And the change in the cerrent was little.At least where i was about 1.25 to 1.5 mi. below the dam.I did get to see one fine looking lady fishing by hereself.What a shame.Caught only one Brown, too little threw him back.I guess i was't holding my mouth right.Got some pics of what it looks like ciming out of the sluece gate .As soon as i figure out how to post them I will.

Well i guess i am to stupid and backwoods to fugure out how to post pics on this site.Trust me, 200 cfs didn't change nothing that much as far as the current, and it only raised the level about 3 to 5 inches from what i could tell.It will probably help the oxygen content.But i dont think that 200cfs will be enough if they stop all the leaks around the dam.But I am not an engineer.
