Jordan Lake - Cub Creek Trip
Put In - Farrington boat ramp, take the left Y after you enter the area and this will take you to a smaller boat ramp with kayak launching areas on both sides of the two ramps. These areas have nice walkways and a sand beach for launching. Directions from US 64, take Farrington Road (1008) north 4.4 miles to the bridge over Jordan Lake. Many kayakers were out this day at the boat ramp. Saw a home made kayak and a greenland paddle. Also met a gentleman who said to google 'Mudflats Rangers'. Give it a try....

Trip Directions - Head east to the US 64 bridge and then stay on the left shoreline after going under the bridge. An island is to your left after you go under the bridge. Follow the left side of the lake till Cub Creek.
Scenery - Very scenic area for birds. Many egrets or herons, turtles, and an eagle. The access road at Cub Creek lets you take a very nice hike around the peninsula that separates Cub Creek and Morgan Creek. Found an old well and various other old homestead remnants. On the way back you will usually be against the wind. The end of Cub Creek had many catfish spawning in the warm water and many small catfish had died for some reason.
Hazards - None, water level was back to normal, 216 ft.
