    Question Floating Hazzards!

    How is running Barkley? Is there much floating in the channel?

    Re: Floating Hazzards!

    This time of year when the water is first being brough up Barkley is usually littered with all kinds of debris, especially when it comes up fast. I have seen everything from entire trees, rail road ties, to broken off sections of docks. With all of the downed trees from the ice storm, it surely isn't any better than normal. I would just use caution, and keep your eyes glued to the water and off of the GPS.

    Fished BFL there Sat. and went past Bumpus Mills. Lots of small stuff starting just past Devils Elbow and some bigger stuff further down. Still navigable though.

    They blew the lakes up so fast the last week or so and now are trying to draw them down a bit is making it even worse than normal. Saw more evidence of floaters coming when I left on Sunday. Gonna get worse before it gets better. Also noticed a couple of times where Red channel marker bouys were missing than where they are usually and one spot where there was 2 greens sitting side by side with a red to the east of both of them. Wonder where this extra green bouy came from. Not to mention red channel bouys up on the bank in barkley and a couple more bigger bouys in the back yards of peoples houses had to come from somewhere.

    I also noticed the floaters past Donaldson........

    We were fishing there Sunday, and the current was strong, and lots of floaters.

    We didn't make it too much out of the Donaldson area. Bottom Line......BE CAREFUL.

    Also, I noticed a lot of marker bouys missing around that area.

    Later,
