Sorry, I just saw this. I recently did a several day paddle on the lower White River. It was very nice. Since Bayou Bart. Is the longest Bayou in the world, it is certainly tempting to paddle its length. It would be a difficult trip though, since very little has been actually developed as trail. I have explored accesses there with that long distances in mind and with the idea of developing more of it, however, a lot of exploration needs to be done. There is a lot of private land that it flows through, so accesses need to be scoped out, and there are some reported big log jams. Still, would be a very cool trip.

i have paddled the jefferson county portion and working on the lincoln county portion.i'm almost to star city. access are tricky and a chain saw would be helpful. i normally go in early spring before the snakes get bad. if you want to go hit me up. it has to be a small group do to limited parking.
