Hey wnewell...welcome to the forum.
For reference I think you're talking about this trip report
. I also filed one from a section of the northern Tallapoosa here
. And one here
composed of trips on both the Coosa and Tallapoosa rivers, as well as Big Bear creek.
Since those reports were filed, my friend Hetairoi and I actually did a complete descent of the Tallapoosa River (~260 miles, including 5 hydro dam portages) during the first week of May 2010. We started north of Vila Rica GA where the headwaters are formed by several creeks and paddled all the way to where it joins the Coosa river at Ft Toulouse. That was an amazing trip that we sadly didn't file a report for. But I can tell you about any given part of the river!
The section of river you are looking at is nice..very peaceful. From the put-in at Tallasee to Ft Toulouse is right at 50 miles on the water. It is largely secluded, and except for one little shoal right at the start is mostly slack water. Plenty of great places to camp, swim, and fish along the way. I especially enjoy watching the herons and hawks fish in that area. Keep your eye out for gators during the last 10 miles if you do it in late summer.
There are plenty of places to hang along the way. In particular some of the large farms have a buffer zone of hardwood trees along the banks that make nice camping areas.
If you have specific questions, I'm happy to help. I don't forsee problems on that section for anyone that has some paddling experience.
