Looks like the river will be around 4.5 ft i would launch at twin bridges and take out either in town or after the town loop drift. You can cover that water in about 5 hours fishing it fairly well. I would side drift or bobber dog the long stretches. I would anchor up for lunch and run some plugs out the back . I would also bobber and jig/bait fish any good looking runs. Good luck and be safe.

Dont launch at moonshine below 5 ' , and i would not try it above 5' unless you know what your doing on the sticks. A guy lost his boat last weekend on that run, apparently he had ran that stretch dozens of times before he sank the boat with three guys in it.
