    I haven't been in a long while. The lake is almost back to normal...I think it's only 4 feet above now. When that oil spill happened they placed several boom's across the river to catch any oil. I know they had them up right at the bridge on highway 60 and I think another one farther upstream. 42,000 gallons sounds like a lot but a majority I think stuck to the city of coffeeville. There's some oil I'm sure that made it downsteam but I don't think it will have much if any impact on the river. The ramp at big creek should be fine to use, but I haven't been there since the flood.
