Attached is a picture of Illinois Creek on Lake Allatoona. And let me warn you ahead of time, It is not pretty.
For those of you who are frequent visitors to Lake Allatoona, Illinois Creek has been known as "party cove". And now its showing. Regardless of finger pointing and blaming one group over another, We need to be good stewards and take care of what a higher power has left us. Allatoonabass.com, along side the COE and possibly the Boy Scouts of America, are planning a Clean up day for Illinois Creek.
If you are interested in helping out and restoring Illinois Creek to a pristine state please let us know by posting here.
A firm date has not been set as of this post but we are looking at sometime after Christmas, possibly after the First of the Year.
I would be glad to help out, and can wrangle the family along for this one too. When we were back in clear creek, we pulled a BUNCH of trash out of there. Irritates me to see the lake in such bad shape.
Danny, Thanks for spearheading this project. Here are even more photo's. I tell you now that I think about how many cans I have caught on spoons and dropshot over the years I don't think we have seen nothing yet. I caught a vintage 1965 coke can once on a spoon.

Dannyp , I will be there let me know what time. This would be a great project to get kids involved in to show them what NOT to do with our lake and the impact it has. I plan on bringing my children also.
If you are not living on the edge , your taking up to much space!!!!!
