Well, my kayak has two rear holders that point the rods off to the sides about 45 degrees from flat. That would be ok, but a 6 foot rod in the straight up holder in the front may not clear so just hold it and go through.
Plus, I think there is only 1 bridge between Shell and Deselm Roads you would go under.
You are in for a treat so report back on how it went if you dont mind. But you better get on it before the water recedes too much. This would not be doable at the lowest levels in the summer.
One other thing. The section of the creek just downstream from Shell Road where you put in is a nice slow-moving carp run for a couple hundred hundred yards until the creek turns, drops a little and the current picks up. I never went for those carp, but you could try them with a carp fly.
Finally, I am not too sure of land owners. I always ran it without asking permission of the farmers etc., but never ran into trouble. I guess just respect their property and there would probably be no issues.
