Whew! We’ve had an incredibly busy week capped off by the Townsend TroutFest this weekend. Thanks for everyone who came out. It was a phenomenal show and we got to see a lot of old friends and made some new ones.
Fortunately the festival seemed to miss out on the biggest part of heavy rains in East Tennessee. Some strong thunderstorms have been rolling through in the afternoons, but we’re happy to report that all of the mountain streams have remained at fishable levels.
The tailwater generation schedules will be changing a bit in the days to come. Cherokee Dam will still be running a minimum flow on the Holston River, but watch for generation to increase on the Clinch River. Norris Lake has reached full pool and TVA will certainly begin to move some water down the river. It looks like there will be plenty of time for fishing but we’ll all have to pay some attention to the generation schedule.
