My group will be there about an hour after yall. If we don't see you on the water would you like to plan on meeting up at armantes around lunch time?

As of Wednesday am Turner camp bridge had less than 7 feet of clearance and water was coming over the dam.

Outfall canal is open with a hell of a current - the climb up the 50' hill is now closer to 40' making it easier to get up...

Watch the bridge at Stokes Ferry I only had 18" of clearance above my cage.

Big Blue Blue not flooded yet...but getting close

Sounds good will try to meet yall there just got in from riding kinda to much water in some of our spots but have some with plenty of parking. Do note that if we go to a spot we call van ness please do not go past the trees the owner of the property does not want that and he does keep a close eye out most of the time try to just stay close to the water line.

Are most of the places Posted with signs if they are private and have restrictions like Van Ness?

In Hernando and Potts its pretty much run everywhere . VanNess Pasture its stay in front of oak trees and don't litter , owner watches close. Armante's it's stay in water and don't pull up on grass. Whenever someone does they are right in the middle of other boats and blow them bad trying to leave. Owner had rather not have people getting mad at each other over that so keep off grass lol

If anybody goes down Outfall , (be extra careful )with locks open current is strong and if you nose in , current will pull you sideways in a second. Seen lots of boats over the years sank ,when locks are open . Water is high so boat will be completely under .

Like jc said them the two only places to worry about the swimming hole there is pole set up to keep boats from getting close to the shelter. Vanness is a big pasture he just asks us to stay below the tree and right now with water so high kinda lose some parking. Armantes we don't pull up on the bank plenty of spots to tie up.
