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 above winter pool as a result of the nearly 1.5 inches of rain that fell last week. This is subject to change based on the weather but if you were anticipating doing any dock or shoreline work, now would be the time to get started.
I have posted a brief video of the current conditions below.
