Altamaha near Jesup

Thread starter #1
Has anyone floated around Doctortown bridge. I have been wanting to paddle the area and fish but also explore the area around the bridge where the Gulfmist barge is down and also the logging equipment and steamboat wrecks.
Might PM mlandrum regular in the fishing forum, see what he thinks.

Been many years since I was there, but I would think it will be a challenge.

The altamaha has pretty good current most everywhere most all the time.
It's a great river to cover distance on but holding in a place is hard. The flow of the river of course is not always from one bank to the other due to bends in the river and the inside of a curve might be slack water.... but dont plan on paddling back UP to your truck. Uou will most certainly want to shuttle.
