    Last week while at Ft. Jackson I talked to a couple of locals that said they had been running water pretty hard. They didnt know why. I aked them because I usually fish below the dam when I am down there. So no fishing last weekend there. If you get any info please pass along. Thanks!

    I called the Duke Energy lake info line and its now listed at 100.30. Rocky Creek is listed at 102.3 so I guess all the rain runoff made its way down there.

    If you ever wondered why they lower the lakes so much in the winter, this is why.

    Just think how high the water would be if they had not lowered it the past few weeks. It might have been in some of the houses on the lake.
