bends with fields, wooded shorelines, and several
small cliffs adding to the experience. Numerous

Fishing: Smallmouths up to 20 inches are
possible although 12- to 15-inch fish are more
common.

often the haunt of bald eagles and waterfowl;
wood ducks and mallards, in particular, regularly
make appearances.

follows this float for much of its length. Roberts
relates that this walkway is ideal for parents and
kids, given its gentle grade and that folks can
walk a mile or two out (or however far they want)
then return to the beginning at East Lexington
Bridge.
