Anyone live on or near Norris Lake, Tn? I heard the water is at 10 year lows for this time of year. I just wanted some pics if possible to see it for myself. I go there all the time in the summer and am a little worried about my favorite Lake.
I was at Norris in August and it was lower than that Nick. A friend told me it is getting worse and worse. I am just hoping Virginia/Tennessee gets some snow this winter or a ton of rain to start filling that bad boy up.
Also know a guy that doesn't have a trailer and the water is dropping to the point he doesn't know what to do about his Malibu. It sits on a lift and he keeps moving the dock out further and further but soon his cove will be dry.
I grew up in a house at Norris lake and it has been much lower than this several times. But Mike is right it is the lowest in 10 years. I go up there constantly and have talked to several marina owners that are not worried at all. Mike your friend with the malibu can call Overboard watersports and they will bring a yard trailer and pick the boat up and keep it until the spring. The water will come back up, I floated the Powell river (flows into norris) recently and it is already comeing back to normal.
Doug - good to hear. I wasn't tooo worried. But hey - my favorite lakes start showing that much dirt, and I gotta start wondering what's going on. That is a big lake and needs a lot of water to come back to normal. I hope it does by next season.
