So I had yesterday off and decided to take to Coosa up to the Saluda to try some back creek channels for bass. I checked the levels and the they were pumping out at 850 CFS which is perfectly acceptable to fish in. It was so calm when I got there I was actually being pushed upstream by the wind. So I made my way up about a mile and into a creek system off the main river. As soon as I got back there my phone goes off and a computer informs me that SCE&G is increasing river flow to the red range! I have never seen anything like it, As I made my way out of the creek, the water was coming up so fast the creek flow actually changed directions. Once I got back into the Saluda, I was basically just a passenger at this point and did my best to stay clear of everything. I made it back to the landing and got my gear on shore and got out of there. The levels changed so drastically you could actually watch the water rise on the ground. I would say about an inch every minute. I called a buddy to get river levels once I had my gear stowed in the truck and he said it was over 12,700!!! So guys, moral of the story, stay safe, wear a pfd, and have a exit strategy. Good luck out there!
