Water level has been a problem, though if you watch the USGS gauge pages, local thunderstorms can temporarily make for a good run. Traveling into Tennessee from KY on I-24, I found that the Red River was running about 800 cfs down to Port Royal State Park, and had a good run. But when I checked the gauge again a few days ago, it was way low.
Sometimes if you go to a smaller reservoir near some bigger ones, you may find that motorboat traffic is less of a nuisance. Also, back inlets may provide some isolation. Getting on a reservoir earlier in the day and then paddling away from boat ramps and marinas toward back inlets can work.
