    Numbered point signs

    This might be of help... The Daymarker is described on Page 3. Some have the river mile on them, some don't. https://www.tva.gov/file_source/TVA/Site Content/Environment/Managing the River/navigation_aids.pdf

    Douglas crappie spawn

    Everything I saw on the sonar today was no higher than 10'.. Caught a half dozen nice females fishing those depths, and a couple of tiny ones shallow early.

    1st time out this year

    Nice looking rig... Don't feel like the Lone Ranger, been there and done that a time or two... Last week, at a local ramp, one guy ahead of me splashed his boat, then cranked, and cranked until the batteries were dead.. The other had a pontoon that wouldn't stay running.. neither had been run in some time.. 'tis the season.

    Rogersville water level

    The riffle under the old railroad bridge is exposed.... You can see it from the ramp at the steam plant (look downstream). The TVA has been lowering it to more normal levels, and according to their website, it'll be at the current level (1056'-1057') through the weekend.

    Have to look for the them

    Thanks for the grim report... One of these days they'll turn on!
  8. JMHO... The Steam Plant's effect on the ecosystem has been highly overrated, and anything below the bend right below Bull Run Creek isn't even aware of the Steam Plant.. I've taken quite a few temp readings all the way through the water column all through there.. Once you make that right turn, (heading downstream) everything has a chance to mix, and the temps remain consistent all the way below Jackass Cove.. Again just my humble opinion, with some actual observation...

    THERMOCLINE

    It is...dropped a fishhawk down the water column, and the temperature readings confirmed the depth of the thermcline..This pic was taken in early September on a lake in WI.. the only pic I have..

    THERMOCLINE

    A properly tuned sonar can pick up the thermocline.

    Melon Hill mess

    The ramp is useable, but there's a LOT of equipment cluttering the lot, and the "work boat" gets tied up to the dock in a way that blocks most of it..I wound up using Guinn Rd. yesterday. Bull Run would be another choice. They're running a bunch of water (8000-12000) cfs, and the lake temp is running 59 throughout.. Anybody know what kind of work is being done where the barge is?
