Hey guys!

I've fished the river several times, but I went out today for the first time in months and it seems like some of the inlets are clogged and you can't get passed them.

I tried to hit up Bethy where the creek runs out, but I couldn't get passed a submerged island.

I didn't try going in the other way a bit further down the river where it's wider.

How do y'all get back there now? Did the heavy rains silt up a lot of the inlets?

Thanks!

Edit: Here's a visual


The red is the path I tried and got stuck. The blue is the spot I'm curious about, I've never tried that way.

The blue path was open last time I was there, around May 2017. But it was definitely shallow.

Can you remember if it was like 1' shallow or inches shallow? I can get through 1' but I err on the side of caution anything shallower haha.

Yeah, maybe 1’, and the bottom was soft. I’d say idle speed only!

Thanks! I usually use the trolling motor through unfamiliar territory so if I hit something like a island or bar I can just back up.

Thanks for the help!! smile

You run the blue path on plane to get through?

Yep. Idle works too but takes forever.
