    I haven't been up there in a while, but I would guess that if you try it, you had better be sure where you're going. From Low Falls down to about the state park, it will very shallow in most places, but off from the state park, near CM# 146, you can probably pick your way back onto the flats. Just my thinking, since I spent several hours dragging my 16' flatbottom duracraft across a mud flat and away from the vultures up there last year, near the blowout. :wink:

    We put in at Lowfalls all the time. It's the closest to home. It is possible to get into the river from lowfalls and then to any flat you want. Be careful it can shallow up fast.

    Go slow, use a spotter and remember to tells us where you caught those big fish. :smile2::smile2:

    I caught quite a few cats farther down on the shallow water last fall, but the water was about 3' lower at the time. I could see the fish feeding on the north side of the river bends where the water entered the flats, but at that time it was too shallow to get through with the boat, so I would set up as shallow as I could get on the edge and cast to the fish feeding in the current coming across the mud bars. Most of those fish were in the 8-12# range.
