Even one generator on the Caney is unsafe to wade. Happy Hollow is a little over 4 miles below the dam and the water takes about an hour to get there. Over twice as long for it to drop to a fishable level after they shut down the generator. Betty's Bend is around 7 miles below the dam and the water takes a little over two hours to get there. These are rough estimates. Find something sticking out of the water, and keep watch on it. Don't go through deep holes that would keep you from getting back to the side of the river on which you are parked if they start generators. The Corps does not always follow it schedule as I found out many years ago when they almost drown me.
