Cow Creek is useable as long as you don't need the dock. Mill Creek is in very good shape although missing some of the parking spots.

Only thing that would ever stop Cow Creek from being usable is debris floating in and blocking the ramp. The lake would go over the dam long before it reached the top of that ramp.

Rumor had it the Cow Creek was gong to get its dock pulled in today.  They waited to see how much more it would come up after yesterday, but I'm not for certain on it.  Day before yesterday the parking slots were almost full when i put in and took out  Never seen that on week days unless there was a derby, and there was not yesterday.

I'm fixin to go look at it and also H hwy. out of the K-nob.  I'm betting H is open as they are building docks over there and I'm sure they are working.

State Park and Moonshine should also be open as they are both steep as heck, unless the Corp has shut them down.  Another would be What's up Dock as that ramp is steep.  There is a yearly charge or you can buy a day pass for 5 bucks.

Boats are running by the bunches this morning, so someone is launching somewhere.

Good Luck

Does the COE annual pass (lifetime for us old ones) count at What's up?

Bobby, it does not as it is a private ramp.  We first stopped at Cow Creek and its fine but the dock has not been pulled in.  Parking lot only had two slots available.

Next we went to Yokum/ Long Creek and the ramp was also open but no parking as it was totally full.

Stop 3 H hwy.  Open with the dock in place 28 truck trailer combo's and a few open spots as they were not parking up the road entrance.

Stop 4 Shell Knob Bridge.  Totally open and dock in place but full and I don't believe that there was a single parking spot open.

Talked to people at all 4 stops and not a single person had caught a fish.  All said total waste of time but beautiful weather.

Sounds like the fish were social distancing as well.

Good Luck

That makes me feel a little better! I don't claim to be a great stick, but 0 bites in 2 trips have me searching for answers. I threw sb and rock crawler with absolutely no love.

Was out yesterday and it was tough! Fished the Kim City area from Mill Creek to point 6 and no fish but had a couple of bumps on a jig. We fished cranks, jigs, swim bait, spinnerbaits, with no love! We had 57 temps in some creek arms and main lake points where 52 and some 54 in some areas off main lake stuff but no shad. We did find shad off ends of  docks in about 45 feet! Water visibility was 3 to 4 feet!
