3.5 inches of rain in 2 days

Post by Jason Chambers » February 12th, 2018, 9:41 pm

This is what 3.5 inches of rain in 2 days does to my home lake. The red line is current levels. The black line is last year.

Norris Lake has risen 18 feet per the guide 999-1017 started sluicing yesterday.
My guess is they will drop it as fast as they can until march 1

How does all this rain affect the fish? With the rapid rising levels, chocolate milk water, and what Not.

The weather has been warm and the rain has been plentiful so I'm assuming water temps are heading back up as are lake levels. I figure the fish still need to eat so there is a reason to go fish. Plan on getting out this Sunday just don't know what to expect as I'm still a rookie. I just renewed my first ever fishing licence. Pretty green.

Normally this time of year my fishing pontoon is resting in the soft mud at the marina. It's floating now so I plan on going out this weekend if I can fit it in. Got one kid sick and the many students at the school are dropping like flies with this flu going around.

I'll have to yield to the experts on this site but it would seem that rising temps and more water = time to go fishing!

We got more rain that I thought we did. Videos of the Chick dam pouring on the news is pretty impressive.

The news did a report from melton hill damn the other day. Tva has Norris sluicing (which I thought means looking for gold) and melton hill and watts bar both spilling and generators wide open. Moving a lot of water through that system. I red they r expecting Norris to b close to or at summer levels here shortly.

The flu is something bad right now. I was down last week with it. It also sounds rough having a perfectly good boat docked at a place with no water. 😖

Allatoona came up 5 feet in 4 days but is receding now.

Pedalino cracked me up with the sluicing for gold deal! :lol:

The fish usually pause or slow feeding when conditions change so drastically. If conditions persist, they will resume normal operations and start feeding again. Cut bait is a good bet when things get nasty.
