By using field-survey hydrological data of the related control stations in Dongting Lake and the Yangtze River mainstream in 1951–2010, the evolution characters of water exchange abilities between the two water bodies and their response to the operation of the Three Gorges Reservoir (TGR) from different time scales are analyzed based on their hydraulic relations. The results highlight that there is a complex hydrological and hydraulic exchange process between Dongting Lake and Yangtze River under the interaction of the river-lake hydrodynamic force. So there is an in-line growth or decline relation between the river-lake water exchange ability and the river-lake water exchange amount
