Plenty who fish the lake likely know the answer here:

From the boat ramp at Lake Athens, when the lake is at full pool (440') like it is now, how much "headroom" is there to pass under the 2495 bridge just off to its west?

My thanks in advance for some ideas. I should have paid more attention when I was out there.

Lake was probably 2' over one time and I had to take the pedestal seat off to get under it. If that helps.

at full pool I do not need to take my seats off to go under the bridge.
Back pole light is a different story depending on how tall it is.
I do have to take my pole out of my Skeeter.
The back area is pretty brown right now (weekend 4-24/4-26) all the spawning fish are gone from those beds.
