This section is about 12 miles between two DNR public access sites. This was a Friday so we didn't see any other people although on weekends I have noticed cars parked at both public sites.
We saw an eagle a couple times as it flew ahead of us as well as many herons and other river birds. Lots of carp in the shallows and a few fish jumping. One jumped and hit my paddle. Surprise! It was pleasant trip, but I would suggest earlier in the summer when there is more water.
We took out at the DNR Azalia public access site off of Co Rd 800.
Both sites are less than a mile off of SR 11 which runs from Columbus to Seymour parallel to White River and US 65. If coming from I-65 take the US 46 exit east. Cross the red suspension bridge and take the very first right then turn towards the river down to the public access site.
