The drawdown every four years on D’Arbonne opens a world of wonder. We scour the bottom finding old chairs and tables, rod and reel combos, baits, almost anything after this spring’s flood. We ride around in the boat, looking at where creek channels come into the river, where old log piles still hide 100 year old tree stumps normally under the water and other people’s secret crappie brush tops, suddenly showing for the world to see. Oops.
But nobody made more of the drawdown than Farmerville’s own outdoor adventurer Stephanie Herrmann, her daughter Maggie and friends. They used canoes and kayaks to paddle out to the new “islands”– sandy high spots poking out of the remaining waters — camped out, took photos and had a grand old time. She sent us some of the photos to share with you. Here’s the proof of Stephanie’s Most Excellent Adventure.
