Thus why fishing on the backside of a 127 release is my favoright.

Can see em come from 10 feet down and 20 feet off slashing at it 4 times before I screw up and pull it away from em in the gin clear What-uzz

Observation is the key. What has been observed is that until you get to a feeder stream the size of Suwanee creek THEN discharge factors from silt runoff start to affect the river below the creek inlet. Above Suwanee creek there are no major feeders of the Suwanee’s magnitude to add silt in that particular part of the river so how did the channel cut the way that it has and in what time period is one question.
The other is regarding these feeder creeks that inflow during rain with silt, what would you do to counteract that issue huntfish?
Also, during high releases I have seen along the leading edge of the pulse that the water within 3-6ft of the bank does become discolored this adding silt into the river but because of the increased flow rate it gets flushed more quickly than is noticed.

They still do those releases, lol?!?!?! Hopefully this summer will be warm enough to warrant the need to generate like that. 2016 was a fun intro into that!

A simple log can change river dynamics. Droppimg the mic on this

Sight fishing on clear falling water can be hazardous to your health sometimes. Reminds me of Pike fishing and seeing that big mouth open up. Hard not to jerk away
