Checked the TVA gages on the Tn. river and talked to my relief on the boat today and we got some water come'n down the Tenn. River guys. There's already a 19' difference between the lower pool at Pickwick & the upper pool here at Kentucky. Thats a 19' wall'a water! :eek: She's fix'n ta jump! Sure am glad I ain't on the boat! :eek:

Dayum!... Well, on the upside, Striper fishing at the bridges on south Kentucky Lake would be hot!

Dang, wish I was there

This might be good for the fish. Last time it put a lot of cover in the river and lakes for the fish like campers and sheds and 4 wheelers. :D I hit a 500 gal propane tank with my boat & it sounded like the whole end of the boat was com'n off!

Don't forget to check back in the bays when the water gets up in the lakes. Last year when the lake came up I was catch'n fish 3' deep in 5' of water around flooded shoreline. Water temp was 43 degrees. :D

Up here where I live, the high water will bring them up into the creeks.
