With the recent drawdown of Boone Lake several boaters have voiced concerns about what lies under the surface of the water. While it’s impossible on any body of water to chart submerged partially floating objects, these are prevalent in the Spring when lake levels are being increased.
TVA isn’t raising the water level for at least another year while they’re working on Boone Dam. Many people are looking at the negative, but one marina owner is looking at the positive.
We have been getting a lot of independent reports that fishing on Boone Lake has been better than ever. We reached out to local fishing expert, Keith Bartlett, to help you catch your next trophy on Boone Lake.
The Tennessee Valley Authority announced Thursday that Boone Lake will remain 30 feet below its normal level until next year. But with lake levels staying put for at least the next year, what does that mean for marinas?
As the Tennessee Valley Authority works to find the cause of a sinkhole and the source of seepage at Boone Dam, they continue to lower lake levels. Boone Lake is currently nine feet lower than typical winter lake levels.
I continue to believe that the TVA will have recreational Lake Levels by Spring, but I do want the public to understand and emphasize the impact TVA could have if they fail to achieve recreational boating on Boone by Spring.
