Bacteria alert/turbidity levels. This is a quick way to check the turbidity.

A kind of water level predictor by NOAA for the river at Vinings. Take with a grain of salt since it is subject to change.

Some basic general guidelines for safety when fishing the Hooch below the dam would be helpful.

1. check release schedule
2. PFD must be worn between dam and Hwy 20
3. Turbidity above 10 tends to be poor fishing conditions.
