Who knows what TVA is up to. Can probably launch at Holly Cir in Soddy.

they manage the water levels off of the weatherman this time of year...and we all know that weathermen are sooooo accurate.

I really don't think they drop the lake 1 foot every time we have a major thunderstorm so there has to be more to it than that

If you look at the operating guide it happens a couple times a year

There will be a 1 lane load-out disaster at cfp for any tournaments with the level this low. A heavier rain could make it managable. Midnight prediction is for 675.4. looks like a hard pull all day. Tips- Do not attempt to launch or load a tandem with a 2wd vehicle. They always get stuck. Do not load out with even 1 axle dropped off the edge of ramp, you will probably waste the axle pulling out. Be sure your winch strap will not break when winching the last 4-5 feet up on trailer(bring a come-along winch if you have one. Absolutely No power loading. Even a little.
. A crew, committee or volunteer should be there to assist in load out's and have a 4WD with straps and chains and a power winch. Hamilton County's answer to fixing the ramp is to put out the warning sign's to avoid liability. The very least they can do is close 2 lanes and have a mixer dump a load of gravel mix into the blow-out of one lane to help ease the pain and suffering of the law bidding taxpayer. Safety should come 1st but they just don't care. IMO.
