Re: Hello from East TN!
The French Broad is as low as any river in NC and TN that are in the extreme drought conditions. I know around the Asheville area it is hard to float a boat. Douglas Lake that the FB runs into is already at winter pool or lower so the river level around the Hot Springs area can't be good. I have frinds who fish that area and they haven't said anything to me lately so that means they are not fishing the river.
Hope this helps
