• At some point over the next few days NC Hunt and Fish will be migrating to a new server. We are not changing our hosting provider, but we are changing machines within that provider. The reason is that an external vendor, cPanel, has increased the price of their software and we need to migrate to a different control panel. When the migration occurs, the site will be unavailable and it will remain unavailable until the DNS servers are populated with the new IP address. This could take a day, but usually happens overnight. Once the site goes down you should clear your cookies and cache in your browser so you no longer attempt to connect to an old instance. Instructions will be posted on the old server so people who are stuck there will know how to find the new server.

Heading up there this week for a few days. Just curious if anyone knows the water temp? Any report to pass along would be great as week. Thanks

Water is mid 60s, and water level is low again, I guess every year they lower water levels, good luck

They use to draw it down a whole lot more than they do now. A buddies house boat use to be on the ground every winter and it’s been floating for at least the last 10 years.

I just bought a house up there last year,,when we drove by it the lake was full and we had plans to go out swimming and kayaking after we closed..1 month later when we went the water was dropped 20ft. We thought something was wrong but the locals told us its annual.

Yes it is annual, it is a flood control lake. I wish they did that with all of our lakes in the Piedmont like they do up there. It sure is great for the fishing

When TVA drops the water level .Always remember that means, that's more fish per gallon. fishing is good rite now . Look in any head water for shad and breaking fish. GOOD LUCK KIBO
Thank you for the info. That is exactly what I plan to do

Santetlha sucks, home lake but no size .Lots of good cover plenty of fish but 6 lbs gets you paid every sat, night. Fish will hit anything green daytime and black at night. Brookfield keeps the water level high year round. Its like taking a bath in the same water over and over.
