Lake levels have now reached winter pool, with levels flirting with the 354ft level all week. Some change in elevation has been occurring, but for the most part lake levels are around 354ft in the New Johnsonville area. There are many rumors about the river dropping below normal, TVA is going to schedule a water release from Kentucky and Barkley Dams to help elevate the low water levels on the Mississippi river, which is approaching a historic low level at Cairo III. As of now, the Tennessee River at New Johnsonville is slightly ahead of the normal draw-down, but not predicted to drop below 354ft. TVA has addressed the rumors, and says they are not true. TVA appears to be just keeping flow at around 25,000cfs throughout the day, instead of only when generating power. Water temps are still in the low 60’s and water color is clear.
