What would it take to reverse the current of the MS River?Posted by Chad504boy on 12/4/12 at 11:12 am
I was hunting with my buddy and we thought how cool it would be to be able to catch snapper and tuna in the river and not be forced to go several miles offshore in the dangerous GOM. To be able to use the resource of the River as a salt water fishing spot would make life so easy.

correct. gradient is the answer here. it's the river's greatest strength and weakness. enough gradient to keep the flow to the GOM and alleviate flooding up north but not enough to take advantage of for power generation.
