We expect a noon to 3 PM release.

Prime times at the ledge will be about 3 to 4:30.

Thanks Cowper, will it still be running 5-7pm? Or is the water gone by then?

If they turn off at 3, by 5 the ledge will have lost most of its play.

You can still get your boat wet, but most will be standing on the bank and loading their gear to leave.

All bets are off if a minor thunderstorm blows through - Entergy might leave it running longer to keep lake level at the desired point.

They started the release about 10am this morning...which should put prime water at the ledge about 1/1:30. Let's hope it still runs until 3pm and they don't shut it off early!
