Recent flooding causes boating restrictions on rivers.

In case anyone is heading out for a paddle over the next week or so, be sure to check with local authorities regarding the status of the river. Just last Sunday a group of us from Float Your Boat were called back to shore within a minute after taking off from the put-in. An Algonquin police officer told us that the Fox River was closed for all boating by the Illinois DNR and that we had to get off the river.

Busted!

You can just imagine how we felt after hauling all our boats and gear to the put-in!@#!@#
