Fishing Report

Sept 11 - 1

Although we've had a big change in our air temperature this week, generation patterns on Lake Taneycomo are close to the same, so far. Today's temperature shouldn't climb much over 70 degrees, and dam operators are scheduled to run 25 megawatts until about 2 p.m., increasing to up to 125 mw for a couple of hours. This has been the pattern the last couple of weeks -- either water off or running 25 mw until early...

One real nice thing about this cooler, drier weather is that there's no fog on Lake Taneycomo early and late in the day. Some like the fog, but I like to fish early and late and don't like driving through a wet, cold fog. That's just me!...
