    I fish up the river channel alot I see people camping in there. I talked to one guy who said the owner didnt care as long as the trash stayed cleaned up. I see this guy bring his boat in with all his gear and set up for the weekend. Good luck maybe if I am down this week end I wil stop and say hello.

    If the bait is where it was a few weeks ago. bring a dip net and go up river to the damn. The shad were running the wall. Just dip em up. tried the throw net they were just to close to the wall. Good luck.

    I've seen people camp many times, I dont know if they ever got a ticket. but never see a game warden at lake so it would have to be somebody from shore, thats a long walk. they probably dont do it much but you know how that goes. I may fish sat night or sunday morning. Pier Pressure has camped at that spot up river before maybe he will see this thread before you have to leave for lake. see ya later

    I have seen game wardens and sheriff's dept. boats in the Old Whitney area fairly often but it's usually during the summer.

    I have camped there also. Never seen any signs saying that you couldn't. Until we do, I don't see how they can enforce it.
