With the high water that we had last week, I thought that TVA might just leave the water level up to normal levels. I went to Guntersville Dam today and the water level was way down. Why?

I like to bank fish at the Dam on the New Hope side, but I know from experience, when the water is that low, fishing is very poor most of the time. Fish at the Dam bite much better when the water level is normal to high.

Does anyone know why TVA keeps the water level so low during the spring? I have fished this area many years and it seems to me that TVA just started this practice only about 10 years ago.(give or take a year or two) The spring bite at the Dam was much better before TVA started this.
