UPDATE Regarding 2020 Take a Kid Fishing Tournament

In light of the current situation with COVID-19, and in keeping with guidance provided by the CDC, WHO and local, regional and national leaders, we have made the decision to cancel the Take a Kid Fishing Tournament scheduled for Sunday, April 19, 2020.

At this time, we have every intention of holding the tournament next year during the same time, when we can take advantage of optimal water temperatures and everyone's busy schedules. Please keep an eye out for communications regarding next year's event in the months to come.

As we know, our community, country, and world are experiencing significant disruptions in normal day-to-day activities. Please know that, in the coming days and weeks, FLG continues its mission to be good stewards of the lake, but also to our friends and neighbors, as well. And we look forward to the future when we can all come together again. Please visit our website or Facebook page for updates in the days to come.

Until then, we wish you, your family and your friends health and safety.

Richard Tyre, President
& the FLG Board

New Water Quality Report Released - Q4 2019

Chemical and microbial analysis of water samples collected at Lake Glenville area sites helps to characterize water quality in relation to potential sources of water pollution. Overall water quality, as evidenced by data collected on December 5, 2019, is acceptable but there is evidence to suggest the influence of soil erosion on nutrient concentrations. Nitrate concentrations increased from September 2019 to December 2019, and orthophosphate and ammonia concentrations decreased in the same time period. Additionally, E. coli concentrations in Pine Creek were observed to be within regulatory standards. The next quarterly monitoring event will take place in February 2020. Results from that monitoring event will be evaluated individually and in relation to the results presented in this report to evaluate temporal changes in water quality and evaluate sources of pollution.


Notice: Lake Levels (Issued 11/07/19)

Tuckasegee Lake requires a three-foot drawdown to perform maintenance on the intake. The lake level will be down approximately one week, but will have no impact on minimum flow. From Dec. 9 to Dec. 30, 2019, Lake Glenville will be lowered to perform maintenance on the spillway gates. This work will require the lake to be lowered 3 feet below the Normal Target Elevation. During this drawdown, the Powerhouse Access Area boat ramps will remain in-service while the Pine Creek ramps may become too shallow for use by some boats. The duration of the drawdown and the time required to refill the lake will depend on weather conditions and river inflows. Duke Energy will provide updates if the schedule changes significantly. For information on current lake levels and conditions, please visit, download the Duke Energy Lake View mobile app or call 800.829.5253.
