As of today the Red measured in Shreveport is at 23.17'. Has fallen about 2.5' since Thursday. I went out Sat from RRS and "wow" might be the best word to describe things. Things you are used to seeing aren't there and like mentioned by others sandbars have moved and getting into cuts between rock jetties is very hard/impossible. Water temp was around 88* main river and up to 99* in the backwaters. Muddy of course but stained to normal/clear in the backwaters. Will try to give a break down as you leave RRS.
some of the markers as you head towards the cut are missing and you can see logs scattered around so I didn't run once I got within a couple hundred yards of the outlet. as you enter the old cut all the old trees/brush/lily pads are washed away so it looks wide open but try to stay to the left and the original cut. water depth varied a lot but stayed around 12' thru the cut but dropped off to 42' quickly on the other side. you can't see the rock jetties to the right and can barely see the top of the jetty to the left.
as you head down river all the reeds are washed away and you just see sand piled up everywhere. I made it into "do not dredge" ok though the current coming across it was still strong. depth was about 5' just as you entered in but I didn't hit anything.
as you get down near "white house" you can see just the tops of the rocks but I didn't try to enter the cut as the current was swirling hard and I hit some rocks trying to guess where the small gap was so decided to back out. all the cuts to the right across from white house are silted in and I found out that the hard way lol.
you can make it into "mcdades" but take your time as the rock jetty isn't visible and its silted in some right near the mouth so running that is up to you.
I enclosed a couple pics hopefully they post well.
**saw several floaters so please use caution while running around**
