    mack i ve been to that landing and i would be wary about leaving my truck parked there. there is a good current in that area when they are pulling water from tillery. at the 109 bridge its like 75-100 yards wide. if the creek your talking about is rocky river then there is some canoeing done it there. there is another creek down there too that is called grassy island creek i think but small. hope this helps.

    you might be able to go a 100 yards then you hit a large log jam. I went up as far as i could go a couple years ago in a john boat
    hope this helps

    mack,
    I fish around grassy islands alot, and the creek that mastiff was talkin bout(grassy island creek) is pretty small, but they're putting in a new floating dock there so access is nil right now. Still would be a nice area to canoe. Hope this helps. I might try goin up to 109 bridge sometime soon to see if I can catch some of those cats like mastiff has on his pic.

    Mack I haven't had much luck catching bream in the river this time of the year so you might want to carry some with you. I catch my bream in a farm pond and keep them in an old bath tub i converted into a bait tank till i'm ready to go.

    theres alot of big rocks in the river between the boat landing and the mouth of that creek so be careful and good luck

    Hey guys, the best fishing I have ever done is between 109 and rocky river. I would say it's about halfway in between the two. It's probably 4 miles from 109. There is a hole maybe a thousand yards long that will average 15 to 20 ft deep when they're not generating. There is a private landing on the left if you're heading up river. The problem is it can't be reached from 109 when the water is low. I have caught 2 flatheads over 40lbs there. The biggest blue has only been 27.
