Holston River, Tennessee - Fishing Report - May 24, 2017
The discharge schedule shows running two turbines today and tomorrow except one
tomorrow afternoon. That is okay for boats but not for wading. We didn't receive any
reports from the past week probably due to the high discharges. They are likely to
continue due to all the rain in the forecast.






7 Day Weather Forecast: There is a chance of rain everyday for the next week except
on Friday.
Highs will range from 66 to 81 and lows from 54 to 66 degrees.
