Water Levels

The Caney Fork River- Water levels have been the story over the past week. The Army Corps is releasing 5400-5650 CFS which is a generator and the sluice. The sluice is releasing water to add oxygen for the fish especially the fish in the upper portion of the river. 
Currently Center Hill Lake is dropping one foot every thirty-three (33) hours. The future generation on the river is calling for regular recreation releases by Friday. This should allow everyone to get their fix starting Friday and hopefully extending, at least, through Sunday night.

The Elk River- With the Jack Daniels World Championship Invitational Barbeque coming up on Saturday, October 27th we may see a few more anglers on the river on the days before and after the event. TVA has been spilling water over Tims Ford Dam the past couple weeks. The river bottom has needed a good scrubbing and 970 CFS should assist with the cleaning. The current release is higher than we like to float. We should have a report after TVA dials back the release. Until then it looks like things are looking up for the Elk.
