Wed…Feb. 22, 2019…..We predicted earlier today that some T-Storms would get organized over East TN and SW Virginia….and that’s exactly what occurred. The storms stayed organized enough and strengthened again enough to give us a pretty strong storm right now as I finish this post. SW VA got over and inch and a half of rain on top of melting snow.
An update on stream conditions …..it appears that NC side of the mtns got a lesser amount of rain and that’s where the greatest amount of fishable water is. Here are some real time measurements as of 11:45pm, current flow is first, norm in parentheses:
North Holston 1010 (430), South Holston VA 910 (410), Middle Fork Holston 203 (90), Clinch -Richlands 1200(450), S.Fork New R. 310(525), Mitchell R 170(80)…..
Have a guided trip with Roger and Dan Harrison tomorrow, looks like we will have some high flows to fish in. Sure hope we can get in a full day . Forecast tomorrow is some more severe weather in the evening and some late day thunderstorms.
Have a great evening….
