Depends on how well you know the waters. If you think you can safely go up the river then, I'd start looking at High Point and work up the river.

It would be the Little Sac. Don't try it if you don't know it, too many channel switchbacks, shallow spots and stumps. With your lack of familiarity with the lake and the low water conditions Cedar Ridge to High Point would be the safest for you. Get a map and see where that area is located. It is off Hwy 245 in Dade County.

with the low water levels right now i would not recomend trying to go up the river unless you have a very swallow running jon boat. dutch is right. its very hard to stay in the channel if you dont know it and last time i was up there the water was close to pool level and i still ran in the mud at times. stay lakeside of the bridge. I dont think they have started the move yet with the very cold water temps this winter but if we can get a string of warm days instead of the ups and downs they will turn on quick. good luck and report in.

How shallow is it up at Alrich? I usually go up the river on the other side of the bridge at Alrich in early April. I have a 17' deep-V aluminum boat. It is safe to go on the other side of the Alrich bridge with this low water if you stay in the old river channel? I can't imagine if being a problem once you cross the flat area and get to to the actual river channed about 1 mile east of the bridge .

Ranger Dave, I don't know how deep it is at Aldrich right now but I can tell you that the lake is 5' 8" below powerpool so I thought maybe that might tell you how shallow it is right now.

I was between High point and Aldrige yesterday and the whites were thick. I don't fish for them, but caught several large ones while flipping jigs. I also saw a couple guys on the bank who had quite a few caught.

Where is high point located? Near little sac or big sac
See my post 7 or 8 posts up.
You really need to get you a map of that lake.

You can get up there with a bass boat, just have to watch it. There are some shallow spots. We were up there in my partners Ranger Z20 and ran all the way from State park to where the timber started. Its pretty muddy up there right now. Im headed to Pomme today.

Several posts have indicated how tricky it is now with the low water. They have especially indicated the area between High Point and Alrich. I have made the trip between High Point and Alrich many times and never had a problem or noticed areas that would be bad during low water conditions. I had to stay in the main channel but I didn't notice the main channel being that narrow. Have I just been lucky? Is it really that shallow between High Point and Alrich?
I have always fished for whites in the old river channel "east" of the Alrich bridge. It sounds like this area is not going to be reachable this spring in my boat. Are there good opportunities for whites between High Point and Alrich? Where?
