TVA, like the Corps, does not set their water management plans while worrying about a few fish. While recreation is part of the equation, it is not priority #1.

I doubt Cherokee produces enough electricity to do much good anyway. The drawn down of the those lakes is what feeds the much larger powerhouses on the TN River. Keeping levels down here at normal pools is much more important that keeping those small lakes at normal pools. Mainly for navigation interests and what little power is produced by the hydros.

Maybe I should call Wheeler and tell them to shut off those units running right now (0850) so they can run them later this evening during the fishing tournament.

BTW this is the stupidest discussion I have ever had on an internet forum. Discussing something which we have absolutely no control over.

A formula to decifer most of your posts:

ch = FIGJAM

First time I have seen that acronym.......I had to look it up .

People complaining of Cherokee being low now.......it is higher now than it got last year. Now Boone is a different story. This is the first year that I can remember Boone not reaching full pool by June, nor will it the rest of the summer unless we can get some rain and they can fill it up overnight then.

Shopson, I would chew your stuff to pieces but really do not have the energy to discuss something with someone who does not know how to interpret the data that they posted or what it means besides at face value.


Uh, it ain't my stuff. Maybe you should get on another conference call with your friends at the TVA and either have them update their website or stop putting false info on it.
Let them know they are idiots and liars.

Just an update for you shopson, Cherokee has dropped 3.5 feet since Aug 1 and TVA is projecting to drop it another 1.5 feet by Monday.

How accurate do you think that info you read was, seeing how the flows went up ten fold on Aug. 1.

By the way enjoy the 10%-20% rise in power bills this fall so you can keep your AC running. \:\)

Ya gotta love a pissin' contest on a fishing forum. To those that are confident enough to forward "horse's mouth" conversations, please state your position with whatever entity that allows such information to be pissed on in an open forum. If TWRA guys can identify themselves, thus opening themselves up to catching spears, surely anyone else can. I can't help but think someone gets their jollies by withholding information that would end the nonsense. If you can't state your position, at least zip it and let others flounder in their delusions. Just sayin'.

Norris and Douglas are also dropping at an alarming rate. I think I saw Chickamauga was planning releases around 40,000 cfs next week to combat all the water coming through the system. The goal this year is to have the water down to winter pool before Oct 1 apparently for some reason.
