Horn Confusion

I'm still new at this night fishing thing, but I do know that when the horn blows I need to get out of the water.

However, Saturday night, I was fishing out on the point area, when the horn blew at the ramp.

I got out. So did some others.

Called and the recording said no generation.

Not sure what to trust now.

Would hate to be out there when the ramp horn blew and think nothing was going to happen.

Is there an 'official' statement somehwere as to clarify this a bit better?

thanks for any advice.

We addressed that in another topic, and Brian shaffer is waiting on a response from the superintendant at the dam. No word yet that I am aware of. It has happened like you encountered several times in past years, but this year is occuring on a regular basis.

At night yes.. during the day... not so much need to head away from your spot.

At night that is spooky and can ruin a trip if you are far from the car.

During the day - it might mean stay put and see if the water comes up - if at all.

I will put another message in to Stan Jones right now to ask what it going on.

here is the other post in case you missed it -

Safety is always the number one issue. Even though I have never seen them run water on a boat ramp horn, I would never recommend that you disregard the warning. Be on guard and do not leave yourself in a "no way out" situation. Hopefully this issue will get resolved so when you hear the horn, we know it means generation. Be safe, and especially at night.
