Jacob Wheeler has moved out to the main lake and his second stop produced a fish that allowed him to cull up a few ounces. Wheeler noticed that the current has increased, which is what's needed for these ledges to load up with fish.
"The heavier the current, the more fish there will be on these places," Wheeler said.
The discharge at Chickamauga Dam increased to 19,000 cubic feet per second at 9 a.m. He'd really like it to get up over 30,000 cfs, and it never got that high yesterday.
