Not generally boated due to many strainers and limited water.

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
