Lock 3 to Lock 1

Lock 3 to Lock 1 is what Haystackers have traditionally called this trip.  This trip puts in on the Bogue Chitto River at the Pearl River Navigation Canal Lock No. 3 near Sun, LA. and takes out about 25 miles downstream at Lock No. 1 located near Pearl River, LA. This trip is an interesting one in that one puts in at the navigation canal, portages the dam into the Bogue Chitto, and then the Bogue Chitto empties into the West Pearl river. This trip is usually an overnighter, but can be stretched to two nights. That is what we did over Labor Day '97.

Be careful, there is one dam that must be portaged, and there are numerous strainers to dodge.
