    Default Warn folks every fall Nimrod hazardous at winter pool

    Yell County Emergency Management
    9h
    This afternoon the Yell County Dive Team responded to Lake Nimrod and rescued three individuals when their boat hit ground and sank stranding them in the middle of the lake. Once the individuals were returned to shore they were evaluated by Pinnacle EMS. The Yell County Dive Team returned to the scene and recovered the boat for the owner.

    Blue Mtn even worse at low pool as there are subsurface rocks waiting on your boat out in the middle . I lost a lower unit a few years ago running in deep water . Better know your way or proceed slowly .

    I remember being out there in 2015 as seeing people just trying to cut across the lake and getting stuck.

    So if you launch at Carter Cove, how is the safest way to the river channel??


    Edit: I see after looking at a map that I need to put in at the lower ramp, not upper ramp by the camping area. The lower ramp pretty much puts you out very near the river channel.

    well it is safe to say the bilge pump could not keep up, 1 positive, they were not in real deep water, they could at least stand up.

    Hope everyone was ok. But the original post said they were evaluated, to me that would mean the were released.
