Quote from: dossphoto on February 22, 2012, 20:24:33 PMLooks like we are getting just a little more water than we originally thought. The graphs leveled out at 109cfs for now. There could be some sluicing from Philpott during this time as well, so keep an eye out for sudden water level changes.

Quote from: Al on March 03, 2012, 09:30:13 AMReceived this from Brian Williams, Program Manager for Dan River Basin Association (DRBA) - He is talking about next week, March 5-8. In my opinion you should go elsewhere next week as 350cfs is too much flow to fish safely"I got word from the USACE that the current rate of release at Philpott during the outage has been running around 100 cfs. Due to rising lake levels, they will be opening the sluice gates wider next week beginning Monday morning resulting in a total discharge at the tailrace gauge of about 320 cfs. They will most likely hold this release at least through Friday, depending on rainfall/inflows."
Quote from: dossphoto on March 03, 2012, 10:30:17 AMHere is the closest I could come to finding a data point in the flow history for the Philpott gauge that **MIGHT** represent the levels we'll get next week. 12/21/2011 09:15 EST3.35' 366cfsHere is a data point from today's level. Which I am getting ready to go test out ![/size]03/03/2012 09:00 EST2.57' 101cfs Look like we'll be just about 9" of water on top of the current level. Please take this with a grain of salt....it's just a guess and it's only at the Philpott gauge!!
Quote from: gamatt53 on March 05, 2012, 11:49:45 AMI was out there Saturday around midriver. I could tell there was a little more water than usual but the fish were still in their normal places - not much bug or surface activity until I had to leave at 3:00 The thing that I did notice however was that the Didymo was much worse than normal down there - need a release to flush that shit out. Nymphing with that crap sucks.
