Default Tailwaters of Cordell Hull Dam

I have been wanting to fish below Cordell Hull dam for years. It is almost 2 hours away for me according to google maps. What I would like to know before I drag my boat up there is....
Where is a safe place to launch a 20 foot bass boat and leave the truck. I wouldn't want to get it broke into. Altho, I know there isn't a risk free ramp anywhere.
I would like to know how deep the water is below the dam. I wouldn't want to hit a rock pile. I have done that before, not fun.
Any other information would be appreciated. Thanks in advance, Alan

I have never met TK in person. We have had a couple of shared thought on this forum. I could tell he was very knowledgeable and friendly. I am sure his family and close friends miss him dearly. RIP TK

The easiest ramp is the one by the Hwy 25 bridge. Itís a mile or so below the dam and across from where the Caney meets the Cumberland.

Have gone yet ? I live about 12 miles away. There is actually a ramp at the damn or should I say once you turn into the entrance to go to the damn, about half way there is a ramp to the right, but its steep. Then there is a ramp at upper ferry, kind of behind the dollar store . Google maps is your friend here.

I haven't had a chance to get up there yet. This year has had a bad start for us. I hope to get up there within the next several weeks.
