2007 Kishwaukee Season Opener with Prairie Coast Paddlers

Postby rich on Mon Mar 10, 2008 10:39 pm

Just recently saw that Dan of the Prairie Coast Paddlers will be hosting another Kishwaukee trip this April. This was an awesome trip last year and I thought I'd post some pics for anyone thinking about going. Water levels were fairly high and we had some fun in a couple riffles with eddys along with an exciting S-turn and strainer that had to be negotiated.
