    ok boc brothers i need a little help:embarassed: i am pretty new to river fishing and i am going tomorrow night. they have been generating water about 2:30 pm and it gets to its highest point @5:30pm i cant start fishing until about 6pm. so i guess my real qustion is where do the fish go after the water starts to settle down and drop back to narmal levels???????? :confused2:

    do they get tight to cover our vinture out to open water sand bars. do they get in holes our go out on points and flats (that type of info would help out alot)

    it is the Chattahoochee river in Ga. it is a river below several ga power lakes and they pull water to generate power. which at this point in time raises the river 3-3.5 ft

    if there is a chute where the water comes jetting back out into the water i would try right in that are if you can get that close, some power plants dont allow you that close. If you can get there , there should be a big scour hole there down by the end of that chute and there will be fish holding there, if not try goin down the river a bit from the plant and look for the closest spot on the river with some fallen trees or a good bend and fish that area.

    My experience fishing below the dam is this....When they stop generating, go home. It's like the fish get lockjaw.

    I don't fish rivers unless they have good current to them.
