Like Brain said, you will get in trouble very quickly!!
It is best to go with someone that knows the area.
Lost of shallow water.
1foot deep all over that place.
I have seen boats run a ground there several times.
I put a 16′ flatbottom in there about a month ago on a warm saturday. It was so shallow that I couldnt even put the little outboard or the trolling motor in the water and had to use a paddle to push pole my way all the way across the flat until I hit 2 ft of water. Same for coming back in. U could use a trolling motor but would have to hold it on the surface. The “channel” is all the way across the flat in any direction from the boat ramp. No chance to launch a bass boat there or anything other than a little flatbottom when the water it down.
So there is a channel that runs through there? If so how deep is the channel? I am assuming it is on the right side?

Water level in the lake is up 5 feet from its low of 483 to nearly 488 on way to SP of 490. So fall Creek is now deeper than a month or so ago. Channel area on Saturday was 6-7 feet max. However keep your eyes open and trim up motor before you make it to the boat ramp area lots of lumber and submerged limbs. Was able to navigate all the way back to the flats. Several boats back there lots of Crappie PVC poles. Outside the channel its 1 1/2 to 3 ft deep was quite clear on Saturday in these shallow area. Caught some nice Crappie w/minnows. Temp of water was 62. Was there Sat morning and it was windy and cold when I was there -missed landing a couple of bass (shaky head). Its a little scary how quickly one can come upon submerged timber from the mouth of Fall creek even.
