Are they still running water today at 4 o'clock?

Yes...  They shut down a turbine and kept the gates open from about 11-5 today.

Weird!!

That's another first... One turbine and 4 gates.

Went up about noon and fished... caught a couple but they must have been full.  Saw no shad in the water but DD said he saw shad at Monkey Island this morning.

Yeah the current probably pushes them downstream I imagine.  I tried to go tonight but couldn't get it done.

Boated to lookout tonight and started One Cast.  3/32nd oz white jig - tore them up!  Couple of decent 17-19 inch rainbows were the biggest but better quality rainbows than yesterday.  They were pretty aggressive.

Boated to the dam after I got done.  Didn't get into them until past outlet #3 but then, it was on again.  Nice rainbows.  Videoed again but won't get it loaded till tomorrow.  I was the only one up there... no wind, beautiful clouds and nice sunset.  Saw one shad in the water and several "hits' around me - I assume fish taking shad off the surface.

Still not sure why they're still running 4 gates... and why they shut a turbine down again mid day.  but not complaining!!!
