Outlined below are the latest operating conditions for Watts Bar Lake published by the TVA. For more information you can visit www.tva.gov.
The lake is near winter pool and is projected to stay at these levels for the next fout t six weeks. This is subject to change based on the weather but id you were anticipating doing any dock or shoreline work, now would be the time to get started. I have attached below a short video on the lake conditions from noon yesterday. This video was taken at Porto Venezia, (my local boat house) about the 543.8 mm looking northeast up river at the southern end of half moon cut.
