So i went trolling on sat went from River and Irving to dam #4
didn't catch a thing

We did bump into the famous robbiegill and catchnrelease from this message board, nice to meet you guys!!

We also took the boat up the dam,, it was all going well till we figured out it is shallower on the top side and my propeller kept bottoming out killing the engine, we pattled as hard as we could to beet the current but there was no use and we went right back over the dam,, we thought we were going under but we survived. the boat did take on a little water and we both got a little wet.

Here is the haunted part!!!!!!
we were passing by the cemitary off of higgens when we looked closly and seen there is a whole lot of graves washed into the river, the head stones and coffins were still there, it was real creepy.
Check out the pictures:

a head stone and coffin:

I doubt that the caskets and the bodies actually washed down stream, although it does make for a good story. When that happened a long time ago, I am sure that the caskets were recovered.

i dont think any bodies were recovered from the way it looks it all just went right into the river.

If you head further south you will find a similiar situation in Forest Park after the river goes under 290. Huge cemetary there and there are headstones and such in that area as well.
