Loch Low-Minn, Athens, TN
49 max/ 29 ave FFW for 33 min, water 89-64 deg, air temp over 100 deg
81 max/ 41 ave FFW for 47 min, water 89-60 deg, brief swirl at 57 deg
All I could squeeze into about a 4 hour window, camped at over 6000 ft
in NC for 3 nights first, broke camp early and drove 200 miles that morning
before arriving, then another 225 miles before calling it a day. Part of a
5 day road trip, main focus camping.
Paddlefish looked cool swimming overhead, lots of fish, decent
visability, wore a 3 mil hood with the tee shirt to allow for the cool
water. Comfy enough.
Definitly wanna return, well worth the trip.
