B.A.S.S. Postpones Day 1 Of Bassmaster Elite At Neely Henry Lake, Gadsden, Alabama

High waters caused by extremely high rainfall totals Tuesday and Wednesday have forced B.A.S.S. officials to postpone the first day of competition at the Whataburger Bassmaster Elite at Neely Henry Lake.

98 anglers will compete on both Friday and Saturday, with the Top 48 advancing to Sunday’s semifinal round. The Top 10 will compete for the championship on Monday.

Lots of weird things gone on behind the scenes with that organization the last several years

Living on the Coosa River ( Logan Martin) this river and it's dams do create many issues, and different at each lake.
Neely Henry is a funny lake, the upper part will always flood worse because it is bottle necked and really just the nature Coosa River whereas the south end, where the dam is will be much lower as it throws as much water as possible through its dam into Logan Martin.
The problem at times is after the rain which causes the floods, these lake will not crest until 3 maybe 4 days afterwards.
Neely Henry is a lake where many people live close to the shore and near flat ground, so the south part is drain to accept the northern part after it passes through the original Coosa River basin into what most people would then begin to call it the lake part.
This is what is happening today, the upper part is cresting and the lower part is going down further awaiting these waters. It's a mess but all the water being thrown out of N.Henry is flooding Logan Martin right now. Logan Martin is what we call the catch all lake on the river chain. Logan cannot send much down to the next lake which is Lay Lake because its bank are very low and any type of water influx floods that area.
It's just a way of life living on the Coosa River chain and the dams we have that Alabama Power owns.

Muddy, very high on the northern end and draining the lake the southern end. You will almost be going uphill if your go from the dam toward Gadsden
and above. That's if you do not collect some trees, limbs, docks, along the way.
