I have heard from Alex that you might not be able to use the boat ramps below Wheeler dam and maybe the ramps below other TVA dams in North Alabama. Also, I have heard that there is a security zone established below the dams at 100 yards below the dams for boats. Since I have not been able to find any official word from TVA on this subject, I sent an email to TVA for more information. Here is what I sent:

Thanks for taking this message,

My name is Kerry Grissett and I run the North Alabama Fishing Forum.
You may have heard of me and the site, maybe not.

I am wondering what is the state of access below the TVA dams in North
Alabama now? I have received reports that it is restricted to 100 yards
below the dam for boats, but I am not sure since I have not seen any
official announcement from you.

Please give me some official word as to what North Alabama fishermen can
expect to find when trying to fish the waters below the TVA dams in
North Alabama. I assure you that I and all the rest of the fishermen
will understand whatever you, TVA, have decided to do to maintain safety
and security. All we want to know is what we should expect to find so
we can be aware and not become a nuisance.

Many thanks,
