im not sure what "turkey" is....

but its about 5 miles down to Beaver Creek. And if the lake is low its another ~3 mi to the Lake City bridge. if the lake is high enough you can boat up the Beaver Creek culvert and take out on the creek.

going this afternoon? im game after 5.....

Hi Yeti, thanks for the info. Turkey is just past Beaver Creek where the outhouse is by the road...so much beach there can't possibly be a problem making the take-out.
Went yesterday; North Bridge to Turkey. That water is movin'! Pretty exciting for a rookie-with-a-raft like me!

wow. 25 years here and im still learning new things! never ever heard that called "turkey" before. i always just call that lower Coopers.

glad to hear you had fun. not the best stretch but i always seem to see lots of wildlife down there. if youre looking for people to go with im down to go most of the time, i work days but usually get off early in the afternoon. if you want to go sometime shoot me a message and ill getcha my phone number.....
