Many of the huge brush piles were exposed too, some are huge.. To bad I didn't have a gps back then..

2000 was full pool, I had just gotten my boat and lake was full.

I think it was 1999.

It was either 1999-2000 when they dropped the lake to make repairs to the damn and I think it was like 20-25' low. There were parts of Indian creek (the actual creek) exposed plus I remember the banks lined with the grass too, was s very sad sight

I love when the lake is down, you learn so much about what you were fishing when it was up. Problem is you have to re-idle all your runs as so much more timber comes in to play.

I have the GPS cords of all 70 brush piles on Ray Bob. If you send me your email address I will try to get the spread sheet email to you. it will take me a couple of days to get them to you.

I don't remember the year either but did several long bank walking trips up in Indian both sides of the bridge when it was way way down. Didn't catch a lot but it was pretty cool seeing all the drops, underwater beaver structure, rocks, a few piles of junk metal, etc Only remember about 20% of what I saw unfortunately. blush

Does anyone remember car cove up in Indian? The old race car shell up there, back in 1999 you could actually see it.

That was the body of a Chevy II Nova street racer. He wrecked it at over 100 mph racing a 'Vette on Hwy 377 by hitting a black cow at night. The Corvette driver, who was leading, never saw the cow.
Mike, the draw down to fix the dam was in '94; '99 was just draw down. And Hysmith said you couldn't kill hydrilla. He also wouldn't admit we lost our fish that year. LMB virus?

That had to be like January 2017, I remember ducking hunting and it rained crazy and all the lakes came up.
