    I know Wateree was down a bit, but the way they have been dumping water I am wondering if all the lakes are at full pool. Looking on USGS (http://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis/uv?02169810) it shows the Santee river at flood stage and it seems odd that they would dump so much water that it would flood down stream unless the lakes can't handle anymore.

    From a report I read on another site,Wateree is at or over flood stage,said that tons of debris,even loose boats were floating down the lake with parts of docks tied to them,they will be giving and recieving water for quite a few days to come

    If you go to the Carolina Catfish Club website site there is a link to the Duke Energy websites for lake levels.

    The CCC site is www.carolinacatfishclub.com

    Lots of debri floating in Lake Hartwell now, so anyone out there should use caution, even out on the BIG water. Seen a floater yesterday that could take out a transom of a boat....................:crazy:
