Buford dam recording said they were starting up for an hour at seven. The gauge confirmed that release which Iím thinking will get to Jones Bridge by 12:30.

Gauges and the dam release schedule are up and have been all weekend.

So is riverflows.net

Today a 50 MW release at 7:00AM. Whether this afternoon is fishable at JB is a personal decision as it will be rising waters for most of the afternoon.

Fished Paces Sunday. Restrooms locked, parking machine off. Too bad they didn't stock. Water was low and clear. Didn't see anything. gave up, should have gone to Smiths or Amicaloa.

BTW, Smiths was awesome last week. Caught my first brook ever in GA. and a big rainbow and lots of smaller fish. Parking lot was full even though the high temp was 35.

Nope. JB is closed indefinitely and is not accessible, for now and for the foreseeable future... IF is going off though...

Referring to Fulton side I am assuming?

Yaker called and confirmed with Gwinnette county that their side is open.

Nope, JB is closed on all sides. The fish, who are officially federal employees, were instructed to stay deepl and hidden. No fishing to be had.

It was pretty brutal at JB yesterday...way to many people and the water was too clear. Got 1 bite the whole day until the release finally arrived later than expected. It got somewhat better but unfortunately my toes started getting tingly.
