March Regular Meeting!
3/7 6:00pm. Ranias Restaurant. Uptown Martinsville.
Show up a little early to the back room and order dinner!
We'll have a quick regular business meeting, and discuss past and future events. We have some great fishing events coming up and you can talk to the principles to get all the poop. We will then welcome Chris Powell, Philpott Reservoir General manager. Chris will fill us in on projects general there, release schedules, a timetable for full hydro power repairs and more. Also, if you have gear that needs a new home, we will have a swap/sale table set up. Bring some cash, folks! We'll have our usual raffle, too.

Maybe with less rain and if they don't drain the pool above the Martinsville dam this year it could be ok. Why not stock more triploids, transfer some more fish(too many near Philpott anyway), then make it catch & release and close it to fishing 5/31-10/1? Can't hurt to try. Make some changes and cross your fingers. It has the potential to be a great fishery.

Mark and I talked about this, but it was just my speculation: The lake levels.
Big rain events have put a lot of water in the lake. Quickly. Warm water. This has happened for a few years. They draw the cold water off from deep. The warm water layer above sinks more quickly than normal and they start drawing off warmer water. With no mixing tower, there is no good way to avoid this.



Plausible hypothesis for sure. Ken made a good point a while back that there are many other warm water small streams other than towne creek. With big rain events, that same warm water that filled the lake is also pouring into the river, sometimes at an alarming rate. Also, with as much rain as we had, the warming effect could be exponentially higher than one expects.
