Default Floating from Peach Orchard

Iím interested in taking a float trip in a drift boat from Peach Orchard to Highway 61. I would like to put in and fish areas downstream of Peach Orchard prior to the generation reaching Peach Orchard. I plan on floating down to Highway 61 once the generation rise gets to me, keeping one eye on my watch and the water level. Basically, I plan on floating through the shoals downstream of the Peach Orchard shoals on the generation rise.

My questions are:
Is it possible to go over the shoals immediately downstream of Peach Orchard without the generation rise? Iím sure it will take a hunk of glass out, so Iím thinking of getting out and walking it. Is that possible? Is it best to go river right, left or down the middle?

Thanks!

Yes you can, if I remember correctly mid-stream and just to the left side is your best bet, but of course, walk it through if you are not comfortable or uncertain. Takes about 2 hours for the water to hit the shoals once the generation is on.

Thanks for the info flyman. I'll probably give it a shot the weekend after next and will try to provide the board a fishing report as well.
