Does anyone have the details on a new reservoir being constructed between Pinewood and Flatiron ?
Name, size, FOW, etc.

It's called Chimney Hollow, been under construction for about a year. Here's a link to a website. It's nearly as big as Carter, boating is supposed to be wakeless. [log in for link]

Whats the typical turn around time for a new reservoir to be fishable? Id imagine its several years to get the vegetation and food cycle established.

I did a little research and Rueter Hess was completed in 2012 and they are talking about possibly opening it up to fishing next year.

not sure if all the factors are going to be the same but it doesn't seem out of whack that it could take a decade to get the aquatic environment established.
