    go to http://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis/uv?02336000

    The current turbidity is at 61, the fishing is usually good when it is around 10. So, yes it is definately blown out..

          Head a couple more hours north to the mountains. It will be worth your drive if you have the time.

            I just got back from the dam, what a morning I stopped counting after about 15. The corn chuckers looked pretty confused. Lots of little browns

                  Last weekend

                  I fished Paces last Fri., Sat., and Sunday, with Fri. and Sat. at about 20-25. Landed about 5-6 on the first two days in muddy water, but I was certainly not the only one out there, and most seemed to be having some luck. I would definately give it a shot with a turbidity of 20, just don't expect a killer day IMO.

                      I gotta say, the river sure looked fishable to me when I drove over the 75 bridge this evening. It certainly was stained, but not the yoohoo I was expecting.

                        why turbidity dropping so fast

                        I think the river will be fishable as early as Sat am.

                        Benvan - you asked why is the turbidity is dropping so fast. Living close to the Hootch, I can tell you the rain last night was exceptionally heavy, but brief and concentrated around Roswell. As a result, I think the turbidity is the result of street and stream bank runoff close to the river rather than from tributary runoff several miles upstream. In other words I think the river flushes itself pretty quickly if it is not getting continual sources of runoff from multiple tributaries.

                        I am going to give it a try...
