Dumping water until further notice.
Hey Doug, lets take the raft out.
I'm going fishing in a few minutes. Seriously. No bote, though.
Bumped up to 2760!!!!
Yeah that is rockin! Lot of water moving downstream. My in laws live in Danville, and they've got some flooding in town. South Boston has parts of 58 closed.
Wonder how it will affect fish distribution in the Smith?
Is the Smith muddy or does it have the murkiness of last summers sluicing?
Sluice gates plus generators. Get some.

FYI I just got myself placed on the pre release announcement list. Not sure how this will work out but let me work with it. I may be able to start a thread that will give us a heads up or at least some background on what is going on.
Right now they are releasing up to 3000cfs in an attempt to keep the camp grounds on Philpott from flooding. The plan is to watch things and hopefully back off on Friday or Saturday.
I am currently in Bassett and it is definitely roiling right along. Muddy as all hell too.
Reduce to 1300 cfs Friday afternoon. Maintain that through the weekend.
Reduce to 600 cfs on Monday. Maintain that through first part of the week to bring Lake down. May adjust later if there are no significant weather events
I got an email this week. I hear there might be some work going on Al, and I ain't referring to the damn dam. I got one final left, but I need a break from thinking for a bit.
Update - @ Philpott Dam
Reduced outflow to 650 cfs at 3:55 pm today.
Anticipate further reductions later in the week if there are no significant weather events
