Warning: High Flows Through Nantahala DH

Pic from a winter trip two years ago)

Many thanks to fellow fly fisher Eric, who read yesterday’s fishing report that noted high flows through the Nantahala River’s Delayed Harvest reach. He directed us to information posted by Duke Energy on its lake levels - Nantahala Lake page. It looks like we may be seeing very high flows in the DH reach through Feb 21. Wading is unsafe.

Here is the link to the lake details page:


And a good phone number to save for your future checks of Duke’s reservoir flow releases: 800-829-5253.

Thanks again, Eric. We will head elsewhere.  You’ll save us some valuable fuel and recreation time!
