On March 13th boaters, kayakers and fishermen were shocked to find the Elk River boat launch below the bridge at Tim’s Ford Dam blocked. TVA installed this set up to block vehicles from entering the gravel bar. The barrier eliminated access to launch a boat that requires use of a trailer. Surprisingly TVA land management removed the barrier, almost as fast as they installed it, due to complaints from guides and other sportsmen.
