I have heard a couple of times in the last week that there is a problem with the flume on the Ocoee and it's going to be running for a while at near release. An online news story from Nov 8 says that water could be flowing all winter long. Has anyone been down to the Ocoee since this happened ?

Yeah I went down with Mama Duck, Yolo Jim, and Honey Badger about two weeks ago. We met up with the Corbin boys and had a great run. You can check release times here: [www.tva.gov]
They are patrolling the put-in to ensure that kayakers do not attempt to run the sluice. I've seen it posted that the fine is the same as for running the main spillway.

For you facebook users (most people) there is a group started to coordinate, ask about flows, etc.
