Best when it hasn’t rained or flooded in a while, as it’s name implies the waters get extremely murky. I’m talking less than 6 inches visibility on a white bait. Lots of northern pike, bass, catfish, and bluegill. With lots of little pockets, streams, and a connection to the river at several points depending on water level there are some monsters out here and it’s one of my favorite spots to go
