Dam water!

The lake is experiencing a crisis from the flooding. The overflowing rivers have uprooted many trees and shrubs. As they float downstream, they are creating log jams. The Dam is working to clear the one that has stopped in front of it!

The log jam.

Truman Dam has opened the tailrace gates to allow water into Lake Of The Ozarks to bring Truman Lake's levels down.

Another shot of the water boiling out of the Tainter gates.

I have no idea why anyone would throw the rocks fisherman anywhere, but apparently casting them off the cliff walk is typical...or maybe not. Perhaps they meant that people shouldn't throw rocks off the cliff because fishermen were below?
