Seven of us went out for the Midweek Paddle Gang paddle. The recent rains had swollen the West Branch of the DuPage River to a level that we deemed unsafe for inexperienced paddlers, so we moved the trip to the North Branch of the Kishwaukee from County Line Rd. to Red Horse Bend.
The gauge at Belvidere was at 1070 cfs. The river was high and the current was brisk, but not unreasonably so. The entire trip was paddled in 2 ¼ hours paddling time.
A great time was had by all.
