How can you tell when the water is high?

Kayaker in the Smokies

This is one way…

We’re in the middle of another high water session all across the Smoky Mountain region with creeks boiling with whitewater and our tailwaters running full. The Norris Dam is about start spilling so we won’t be fishing the Clinch any time soon. Even the Watauga and South Holston, usual good bets in high water, have pretty high flows.

If you haven’t seen it yet we now have a page on our site that has stream flows for many streams in the region along with our commentary of what the different levels mean. You can find that by clicking “Stream Flows” on the menu bar or clicking here.
