    I doubt it unless you have a boat light enough to drag across certain spots or the river is at flood stage. There are some shallow riffles about 10 miles North of big creek ramp about 24 miles from the lake. That's where I stop with my boat. I can be on place and draft 6 inches or so but lots of rocks and many shallow places between here and there. I'm also not sure if there's any low water dams between here and coffeeville. In a air boat,canoe or light jon it would be possible but you'll get stuck or tear your lower unit off trying it in your boat. Come down and camp on big creek and you'll have 24 miles plus lots of creeks to fish....great catfishing.
