Water in the C&O Canal

My sources tell me it appears the Canal is getting filled with water in the section around Georgetown. How the fish actually get in there after they drain it is still beyond me. Well, they clearly get washed/sucked in, but I'm amazed it occurs in the numbers we see.

I've also been told that there will be no water from Lock 5 all the way north to possibly even as far to Lock 22. I'm hoping I'm interpreting the data incorrectly, but it sounds like I'm not. There's a culvert at Carderock and the "Log Wall" that's requiring repair. As I mentioned in my last post, there was normal water levels in between Locks 6 and 7. Hopefully that sticks.
