Is the entire Catawba river controlled under the release of the flows or just parts of the river??

Anything is possible with will, determination, and an endless supply of expendable labor.

DANGER, WARNING, it is only wadeable if they ARE not generating!

There was an article in NC Wildlife last year about a father and son who narrowly escapes the rising waters.

DANGER, WARNING!

me - "There's a season?"

Thanks WB.  Whats interesting is that I called the number and they said it was subject to changes without notice.  That kinda scared me.  What the hell is the point of a flow release if it is "subject to changes WITHOUT NOTICE".  Its strange... Any comments?

it's a major disclaimer! ALL dams that I know of have the same message! You never know, usually they stick to the schedule but not always....

Yea i know WB.  Its wierd.  I dont think its even worth the trouble.  It would take away from the relaxation to have to continue looking over my shoulder constantly... Thanks for the link tho man.

Are they going to put triploid or diploid browns in there and will there be anywhere in the main or side channels or feeder creeks for reproduction or is it going to be maintained strictly by stocking?

I think the ultimate goal is for the browns to reproduce, and there are plenty of shoals for them to spawn on. Only time will tell once the minimum flow is instated.
