Greers Ferry Lake’s level is 464.8 which is 2.6 feet above normal. The Corp is still running one unit plus the flood gates to make the release equivalent of two generators. This is a 24/7 schedule. Fishing is spotty at best and drift fishing is the only option. With the high water and strong flow, caution should be used when drifting. One person should be watching the path of the boat to avoid pinning the boat against an obstruction (dock, rock or tree).The Corp stated that they will drop the generation to one unit when the lake reaches 463 which should be in about 6 days. This will still require drifting but with lower flows.
There's still time to get that Christmas gift that any fly fisher would like. A guided trip on the Little Red!! If you need one for the stocking, give me a call and I'll take care of it.
Be Safe and Good Fishing!!
