    from what ive read the road to access the river is closed to motorized traffic. but you can walk and i tell u its worth the walk. i to have seen the biggest gills ive ever caught but the flats dont like them they like the 4-6in gills.the lake is 53% now thats great so its gonna be one hell of a walk though.
