Mariners are advised to use caution when sailing between Navigation Mile (NM) 23.1 (Cooks Point Light) and NM 24.6 (upstream of Ross Ferry Light).  Mariners are reporting shoaling in this area, and that they are favoring the green line.  Due to high flows, the Corps of Engineers has not surveyed this  area and cannot verify either channel depths or sailing instructions.

This Navigation Notice will be updated as more information becomes available.  Questions or requests for additional information concerning this notice should be directed to the Little Rock District Office, at (501) 324-5739 or you may email
