coming from the lower end once you get up to Johnson creek, stay to the right of center on the main lake. there's a forest on the left. Usually you can see it, not sure what the lake level is right now, but from that island on up there is a lot of timber on that side.
You can run the right side from Johnson up past alley almost to the big main lake point past alley. If you've never been i would idle through that stretch on the point.
generally speaking, idle once you get past the bridges in the lower lake creeks like alley, johnson, hurricane. assuming you can get under the bridges right now.
