Our first float trip of the season was actually an informal impromptu one. Marcia Medford of Highland Rim joined myself and Alan & Jill Cutler from Murfreesboro on the river.
We started at Normandy Dam and had to portage at Cortner Mill where we rested and ate our lunch, before getting back on the river and floating to the take-out at Dement Bridge.
Although we only had four in our party, there were lots of people on the river this day, floating in canoes, kayaks and tubes as well as fishermen (and women) of all ages.
The water was cold and we were really only able to put our feet in, but I have a feeling it will be warming up very soon!
