TVA was up to some weirdness Friday: the river flow rose and fell a couple of times during the day, more than baseline non-release flow but less than a full release, then followed by the river turning pea soup green???
Was still opaque and greenish Saturday morning until rains came and it turned muddy.

This was case as recently as yesterday (12/26). I saw only 1 boat come through with a long-time guide on the river that mentioned his last few trips have produced very, very little. I'm just wondering if there are any updates from John Damer and the status of the "dam repairs", as I like to call them.

I miss the old river.

I'd like to think no news is good news but based on history, I'm no so convinced. Here we are rapidly approaching warmer days and still no mention if the dam is even fixed or not from last October.

Alarm went off at the dam just before dark Friday evening but I didn't stay around to see if there was a release. The water was pretty cloudy at horseshoe Saturday morning but clear again later in the day.
The river could use a good flush as wading stirs up lots of mud from the moss on the water.
I caught rainbows and browns at Curtis, Horseshoe, and above Curtis. Some on top and others on the dropper.
