Dismal Swamp Canal

Has anyone transited the Dismal Swamp canal recently?
I understand there may still be some debris from the hurricane that would restrict larger boats.
Thanks!

Not so much debris, there are sections that are choked with chickweed, especially around Deep Creek Lock, and will totally clog any water intakes. This will flush out eventually. Stay in touch with the lock tenders. Chuck

I was told two days ago that the Dismal Swamp fire has started smoldering again, so smoke might be a problem.
