Lake Cumberland Tailwater - Long Bar Fishing Access

To cross the river you may:

A) attempt to ford the river
B) caulk wagon and float across
C) take a ferry across
D) wait to see if conditions improve
E) make your husband wade across and hope he doesn't drown 

You guessed it! Option E is correct. 

Unfortunately, the flows were to big so we were unable to cross to prime trout water. Still caught a fish so it was a fun day!
