The water has been high for long on the Mississippi River that is has likely made big changes to the depth in many areas. The only good thing is that the water hasn’t been real muddy, so should help. The bad thing is the sand being washed down, it will fill up sloughs and fill in wingdams. With the high water and strong current, every time a barge runs by the current gets all the stronger. This has happened before, a slough with 8′ of water turns into 6″ of water and is no longer navigable. I lost some of my favorite wingdams in the past, and now I fear I lost a few more. It will also eat away at the unprotected islands and instead of the usually 10′ of erosion from the top side of the islands, now it will be 10 yards or more. It will also fill in the main channel so it will affect the barges and will likely need dredging.
