Water Revisited

As I mentioned recently, things are looking much better as far as the water situation is concerned in the Smokies. To further bring home the severity of the drought and also the current improvement in water levels, I searched through my old photos for one of a favorite run that I took during the drought. On Christmas day, I took several more to compare. Here are the resulting pictures...first is during some of the worst part of the drought in September 2007.


The following picture contains the same section which is of course tight to the far bank. Notice the lack of flow in the above picture and the nice holding water that exists at "normal" water levels. I've caught browns up to around 12 inches in this run so it is good to see some water in it again.


Here's a closeup for easier comparison...


For yet another view of this run, it is featured as our current Photo of the Month for January.

    Great example of the effect of the lack of rain.
    Good luck on your intentions for 2008.
