    Tugaloo Seneca Fork before Dam

    Found this site with a cool pic of where the Savannah forms at the confluence of the Seneca and Tug; I can recall how to post pics, so here's a link:

    Interesting to see the large shoals on the Tugaloo and so few farm fields. Looks like there are a lot of trees down there. If you find any other old pre-dam photos, please post! Thanks again WKELLY.

    Yes-- a LOT of trees. I've caught my share! I was hoping to find an old map of the roads that crossed the rivers; I believe they are noted in the Navionics web page, but thought there might be some old pics and maps. Just kinda curious to see what was down there, etc.
    The history of the lake is interesting-- two things held up the project: one was an old woman and her daughter that kept chasing the loggers off their property with loaded guns until there was a final eminent domain settlement. She go ripped off, of course.
    The other was Clemson-- the full pool level of 660 would have flooded quite a bit of the campus and possibly caused damage to some bldgs at flood pool. Apparently the university bought a ton of bottom land after the project was approved for ONE DOLLAR, and then claimed this land would have been "irreparably damaged". Clemson made some big bucks on the deal, I'm sure, and someone's hands got greased....
