Something Fishy

Seagulls have been patrolling the churning tailwaters below the Gavins Point Dam spillway in recent days looking for some bite-sized meals. The dam is still discharging water at 80,000 cubic feet per second (cfs), which is far above normal at any time of the year, but particularly so in mid-autumn. According to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Gavins Point discharges are expected to remain at 80,000 cfs until at least the end of this month before discharges will need to be brought down as winter settles in.
