River Description

Not generally boated due to many strainers and limited water.
Caution!! Access on the upper reach of Island Creek on Catoosa Road going west past the game check station is controlled by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency. According to the TWRA WMA Non-quota Turkey Hunt Handout Feb 1 thru March 30, 2007 is a Wildlife Rest period and access to the WMA is closed to all users and no vehicle access is allowed. April 6-8, 14-15, 17-19, 21-22 (Young Sportsman Hunt), 24-29, May 1-3, 2007 are turkey hunts. During these hunting days, the Catoosa WMA access is restricted to all but hunters. There are usually signs posted during hunts and rest periods alerting you that the area and roads are closed to access. If you are uncertain, check at the Obed Wild and Scenic office in Wartburg or with TWRA. TWRA has fined boaters in the past for illegal access and parking at river accesses in the WMA such as the Devil's Breakfast Table parking area during restricted times. The fine has been as much as $142 per person.
