Anybody live in or around Newport available to offer water conditions for the Pigeon? Thinking of going this weekend, just like to know if it's gonna be muddy or not.

one thing that might help you is the tva info hotline. 1-800-238-2284. this will tell you the flow rate of most of the rivers in the state. i dont live near the pigeon or the noli anymore or i would help you out with visual. i can generally tell what the water will be like on the noli with the flow rate if i watch it for a few days though.
