Someone told me yesterday that they were talking about broad river on the news. They said it was so polluted that the public should not eat any fish at all from it. And if you caught a fish you should handle it with rubber gloves and throw it back.
I thought he was full of crap but he swears it's the truth. He said they were supposed to be putting up warning signs at all the landings.


Have any of y'all heard anything about this?

Not sure who you heard on the news, or where, but DHEC has Broad River listed with NO consumption advisories. If you hear further info, please post. Thanks.
I think I did hear something about the French Broad River, in NC, but don't quote me on that.

Yeah the Cherokee falls area is where the guy lives. It's here in upstate south carolina for anyone who doesn't know.

The 99 islands dam area and pick hill above the dam are the only places I ever go on the broad. (near blacksburg and gaffney)

But this could effect people from the mountains to the coast.

I've spent some time looking for info on the web and haven't found much of anything. I spent at least an hour on that news channels web site, and it's not on there anymore. I went back through all the arcives I could.

The only thing I did find while searching the web was a caption from a bass web site. The guy was saying he went up toward the cherokee falls dam looking for some faster water, and there were dead fish floating everywhere.
But the dern site is having problems or something. It won't let me on.

Maybe somebody will find a link to something.

Some of my freinds fish broad river a lot. I'll tell them to let me know if they see any new signs about it.
