Clinch Tailwater (Norris Dam, TN) 06010207 # by USGS
The Clinch Tailwater is 13 miles in length and flows from Norris Dam, at River Mile 80, to the Highway 61 Bridge near Clinton, TN, at River Mile 67. The upper reaches of Melton Hill Reservoir extend to the Highway 61 Bridge where the Clinch changes from a gentle cascade of rapids to slack water. Hypolimnetic discharges maintain appropriate water temperatures for year-round brown
trout survival between Clinch River km 128 (Norris Dam) to river km (rkm) 108 (headwaters of Melton Hill Reservoir).

Threats
Significantly, the Clinch Valley's land, water and natural resources also sustain human communities and their economies. The socioeconomic conditions of the area are defined by high unemployment and economic disparity. Our challenge is therefore to develop and promote economically compatible approaches to conservation that not only protect the Clinch River as a natural resource but also allow for its sustainable economic use. Declining water quality, a legacy of coal mining, and unsustainable agricultural practices are the primary threats to the Powell and the Clinch Rivers today.
