I have floated it many times with 1 gen in my boat. Just wanted some opinions on 2 gens. We will probably go to sligo and do the smallmouth thing. Someone mentioned only 1 hook. I thought that was on upper caney from rock island to Great Falls dam? Sligo area is normal lake regs, correct?


Yes, that is correct.

Anyhow, yes, the ultimate goal is to be safe, but just because there is physically more water does not mean that it is more dangerous. One gen will kill you if you fall in just as easy as two. Ultimately do what's comfortable, but...don't be unnecessarily afraid of the water. As I recall, a guy drowned last year in no-flo.

Yeah, the single hook rule does only apply to the Rock Island area. But...I saw a guy take a 13 pound walleye out of there. Plus...well, go throw some storm swim shad around up there right now and just see what hits. I'm thinkin' of coming back just for that reason.

No flow, I've never seen that? As I recall they ran the sluice last year and that person drowned while wading a flat gravel shoal on falling water with the sluice pushing. Hardly no flow but clearly demonstrates how dangerous the river can be.

Well, actually, the only sluice that is constant on the Caney is the sluice gate that was installed on August 4th last year, and it has a maximum of 250 cfs at full lake stage. They only ran with an open sluice gate when they had a generator on. That poor guy drowned just below the Happy Hollow boat ramp, about 300 yards downstream, where the river bottom has some fairly large rocks and deadfall trees on the bottom. There were 2 young men on the other side of the river fishing from the rock bank there that tried to get to him to save him but were too late. And yes the water was still in the "falling out" state and wasn't completely down so there was some flow as there usually is in that part of the river. That isn't a particularly good place to wade under those conditions.
