That would not surprise me at all. Maintenance on TVA systems is another relatively frequent reason for levels not following the "normal" curve.

I think it was in the early 60's that they had some sort of problem with the locks or something at Wheeler dam and they literally dropped the bottom out of the river. I mean REALLY dropped the bottom out of it!!! I have heard stories from older folks about how the "OLD" river channel was the only place with water in it. Man that would have been something to see, but if my estimate of the date is correct I may have still been in diapers.

Good luck and good fishin'

Kerry
