Table Rock Release Tuesday

Recommended Posts

From the Corp:

CLASSIFICATION: UNCLASSIFIED

We are looking at beginning spillway releases at Table Rock tomorrow.   The purpose of the spill will be to supplement hydropower releases under normal flood control operations.   We still have 1 unit down.   We are not sure of the timing or amount, but it will likely be the 5,000 - 10,000 range sometime tomorrow morning.  I will provide more information as I receive it tomorrow.

Sorry, this is probably a stupid question, but what does this mean for the lake level on taneycomo?  I've never heard clear up to the dam. I always stop when I get to fall creek. Would the water be high enough to easily boat to the dam or would I still have to avoid obstacles and shallow water?

Thanks for any advice!

After reading the "how to boat to the dam" post, it looks like you can run up the middle of the lake at 705.  So it shouldn't be a problem to run up to the dam even if they just continue to run 3 units, correct? Then if they open the gates it will be plenty deep pretty much everywhere?

Do you guys have any recommendations for fishing that kind of water? Jetkbaits? Do you think there will be any shad?

 

Thanks!

Thanks!

I've always wanted to see the good gates open, but never timed it right. Maybe it'll happen this time.

Please open gates 3, 5, 7, 8, and 9 to one foot (1') each at 0700 in the morning.  At 0800 please open the remaining gates (1, 2, 4, 6, and 10)  to one foot (1') each.  When the openings are complete we should have all 10 gates opened to one foot (1') each.  The total spillway release will be 10,500 cfs.  Combined with three hydropower units, the total release through the dam will be 20,000 cfs.  Please let me know when the gate openings are complete in the morning.
