Membership meeting at Rock Creek

All club members are invited to attend the Friday, May 3 membership meeting, which will be held at the Rock Creek Ocoee store pavilion from 6:00 to 10:00 pm (come early if you’d like.) Dinner will be pot luck, so bring a dish to share – the club will provide hot dogs and beer. Outdoorsman and author Kirk Edelmann will be there to give a presentation on his upcoming book about the rivers of the southeast (both easy and difficult) – a good chance to learn about some paddling jewels you may not know about. If you can help with the setup, contact John Hubbard at secretary@tvccpaddler.com.

Ocoee, Hiwassee Release Levels

Broken_NoseSome good winter paddling is available on the Hiwassee and Ocoee rivers for those able to venture out into the cold.  Here is a link to TVA release info and flow data for the Apalachia Dam near Reliance.  In the meantime, water is apparently flowing below the Ocoee #2 dam while work is being performed on the flume.  Click here for current flow levels before heading over – for the time being all of that flow should be running in the riverbed.
