Quote from: RiverbumCO on October 21, 2020, 20:34:17 PMCrazy the water can be that warm still.

I think they sucked all the cold water out of the bottom of the dam... the water that is coming out now is mid=level... the whole damn river is fucked up...

It needs to get cold during the Winter, otherwise there will be no cold water introduced to the lake.  I didn't bother to use waders last Winter, and was nuts deep in January without them. The polar vortex years experienced about 5 years ago are not the norm.  We're also seeing more rainfall during the tropical season. It also seems east slope watersheds from Doughton to Rocky Knob are seeing more Summer precip due to T storms in recent years. I bet Devils Garden area received well over 100 inches of rain this year. All of this warm water entering Philpot will make a huge difference.

Check out these nice stickers someone left behind my wipers the other day. 👍🏻

Quote from: Dougfish on October 01, 2020, 20:06:53 PMMe thinks there is a thick layer of muddy water in the lake we are continuously drawing from.
Ugly.

Yes. ~ 70 years worth of sediment has built up behind the dam. Not sure if there has ever been a conscious effort to dredge or otherwise address it, but running through the sluice gates is likely the only times there has been any significant flushing.
Here's a cool video that exemplifies this sort of action to an extreme. The purpose was to empty the lake.

I'm a fan of blasting some tunes.

So, he does blast music?  If true, you guys need to get some control of this dude, and others like Doug, and all those other defilers of nature's rhythmic sounds.

Let me know if you need assistance.  No worries.  Ask Fin, but I believe some of my earlier indiscretions and lack of tact surrounding the Smith and the so-called stewards of the tailwater have followed me more than a hundred miles north to the mountains of Bath.
