Think out of state anglers. Look at the license plates in the parking lots.

I have talked to lots of out of staters. I tried to help them the best I could. They come up with some silly questions. One guy asked me if it was ok to park by the water at happy hollow. I told him yes..........j/k

Was that the suv that floated down the river a couple years back?It is amazing how many people don't realize how quick that river rises.There is no telling how many i have had to take back across the river to thier cars.

I had to pull a guy off the sand bar one day. he was trying to load a boat and the water was rising and he was spinning. I took off running up the ramp to get my 4 wheel drive . I got to my truck quickly unhooked my trailer and took off down the ramp to pull him out. As I was driving down there a guy ( probably an out of stater) jumped in front of me yelling hey you lost your trailer.... I just laughed and kept on driving. Water was past my runner boards by the time I got him out. Happy hollow is fun when they turn 2 gens on.

Onerare- Are you old enough to remember the day Buddy Mason and his brother James had a taste or two and drove the tractor out on the bar and then went to sleep? They turned on two gens and the tractor went to Gordonsville.

Oh he11, that had to have been 35 years ago. Never mind.

When they burned out Odell the first time, Buddy went into shock for a week. He had to drive 2 miles farther to get beer. But what killed me, he had enough whiskey in his trailer to open a liquor store. (he and I were neighbors at Cove Hollow before it went to he11).

Yeah i used to hang out out with a freind of mine at cove hollow and we did some limb linig and jugging amd walleye fishing, but that lake has got so crowded it is hard to enjoy.I don't even go to the lake on the weekend end anymore unless it is just to go hang out on the houseboat and have a cold one.
i know a lot has been said about how crowded the river has got but i dont think we have seen the worst yet.Just wait and see what happens when they get Laycock bridge open again and maybe put an interstate exchange in over close to Bettys Island.That will put even more people on that part of the river.The exchange may not happen but i don' think they are spending millions on that bridge just to connect Lancaster and Club Springs.
