The Mississippi at Memphis

Looking for someone familiar the Mississippi and its tributaries around Memphis, who is willing to share their knowledge. Would like to do day trips — explorations — in the area. Thanks.

We used to have a member here from that area, but he’s been absent for a few years. Based on his reports though, I think you might want to check out the Wolf River in its upper stretches. A lot of it looks interesting to me, but there’s this part that is effectively dammed-up by a big accumulation of sand, creating a big swamp that seems particularly interesting (the sand washed into the river farther upstream as a result of human activities, and apparently moved downstream just “so far” and then created a blockage).,-89.3124938,3061m/data=!3m1!1e3

Look up Rivergator: along with John Ruskey and Quapaw Canoe:

Thanks. Yes, Rivergator is a wonderful resource.
