Good morning. Headed to the south end of Rayburn for some recon. I know the lake is down 2.5 feet. Any predominant hazards I should avoid? I tried a search but got no results. I will probably put in east of the dam.

Thanks!

South end is pretty open. Few problems until you reach Caney on the west side or Veach on the east side. Some stumps around Needmore too.

There a few stumps in the middle between five fingers and Westwood. Not visible at this level but they are there. One may be sticking up by now. They are literally right in the middle of the lake. The stumps start going north just before buck bay also way east in front of the Bear Creek area.

I don't have it, so I can't say how good it is, just passing info along.

Ken Smith's videos and boatlanes are pretty spot on. Boatlanes shows the edge of the forests, Ken goes into a little detail about specific obstacles! Together they are great tools.
