Goodfield Creek - TN river
Lora and I did 5.8 miles on Goodfield Creek of the Tennessee River. We put in at the boat ramp on Cottonport Road off of Hwy 30. We went under the bridge and looped around the lake counterclockwise. We paddled up Goodfield Creek as far as the water would let us. While cooling off in the creek a young boy came up on his four wheeler and we talked a bit about his hunting and fishing. He was trapping Coons, but had a opossum in his trap.
We ate lunch in the creek and then continued back to the lake and finished our loop. We went back under the bridge and explored the sloughs on the Northern side before going out on the TN river. We then headed back to car. There were some young kids jumping off the bridge when we got back to the boat ramp.
