      The elevation of the source matters more than the elevation of the lake for mountain impoundments. The Hiwassee and its feeders come off massive hills in the core of the escarpment. It comes down from 5000'+. Apalachia just sits at the bottom of what used to be a massive gorge. Although, come to think of it, the source of the Tallulah is probably 4500'+, too. Upstream bottom release is magic stuff.
      Standing Indian is actually 5,499ft. The Tallulah is a rare river for Georgia as I do not believe any other river has a headwater origin as high as the Tallulah's is in elevation. It looks like based upon the topo maps and Google earth that it starts just above 5,000ft.

        Standing Indian is that high, but I think the source itself is like at 4900'. Regardless, way up there.

          I spent way too much time on google earth and other mapping services. One of the feeders that flows in I may give you a shout about. You fished much of that basin?

            Not as much as I should. Some interesting geology in that area, but it is a haul from Asheville. It's hard to pass up hitting stuff I already have thoroughly scouted up that I know is productive to make that kinda run on spec. But the geology is interesting.
