    Gee, I wish I could help you out but the only input I can offer is that they are gradually raising the level of Barkley each week and I assume they are doing the same for Kenlake as well.You could definately use your boat on either lake, but I can't advise about below the dams.

    I really never fish below the dams anymore myself....so I dont know about the rivers. I fish the lakes above the dams. We're getting hammered with heavy rains and the rivers will probably be swollen to say the least.:crazy:

    As far as I know there aren't any members left up around the dams. I haven't been up there since some time last year, so I think my information about river levels may be outdated.

    i was below barkley tuesday night and the river was so swift my anchor wouldnt hold. they are pulling alot of water at cheatam dam plus we got more heavy rain today. if your goin to be on a boat i would use extreme caution. leave the white water rapids to thhe fellas in the kayaks.

    will river are up.lots of water comming out of the lakes. but the skips were biting.both dams still slow but got about 140 of them.watch some locals in boats dipping for shad and skips to sell filling up boat loads at a time.
