You can put in at Abbotts Bridge and take out at Medlock Bridge. Boat ramp at both places. Check the generation schedule. River can rise 8 to 10 feet in that area. PFD is always a good idea.

Well if you are going to be in a boat you have to have a PFD. The only time you can take them off is if you are out wading. (If you are north of the highway 20 bridge you have to have a PFD no matter what.)

Fishingwise, it's artificials only from Hwy20 to Medlock Br. Roostertails meets that regulation. No other baits are allowed in possession--so take only the Roostertails and similar artificials. 8 fish per day max on each persons seperate stringer or seperate cooler.

PFDwise--what DaDa said.

BRF--your info is not correct. Read the regs.

Not completely true. Below Hwy 20, you have to have one class III PFD on board for each person in the boat. The regs do not stipulate you have to have it on. Stupid not to wear one when below Hwy 20, but it is not illegal.

Buck has it right. You even have to have one on board in a float tube or pontoon boat. The only exception is if it is a child on board below a certain age they must wear the PFD at all times when underway. I think the age is 10 years old but not certain. For boats beyond a certain length you also have to have a throwable FD on board.

Caught 3 beautiful browns north of Suwanee Creek out of the kayaks on 1/16 oz brown rooster tails. Awesome! Will post pics soon.

Here's Buck with a "borrowed" one, because he forgot his. Buck was prepared to pack up and go home if it weren't for the courtesy of a fellow fisherman loaning him one.


The one I use all the time now is the result of my forgetting my cheapo at home when I went to the dam. Kayak PFD's are comfortable enough to where no matter where or how you're fishing or boating.
