Hello fellow floaters. The river is still a foot or 2 higher than normal, but it is safe to float. I am open everyday, so plan a float and let me get you on the water. Customers have been seeing an eagle and other predator birds, along with cranes, turtles, geese and muskrats. The middle section is deeper than usual, so there are not very many spots to stop and swim. If we do not get any rain for a week, it may go down and expose some sand bars. The river is moving about 5-6 mph until it reaches the US31 highway bridges. Then it slows to about 2mph. Saturday morning the 29th of June is the first community paddle for 2019. Bring your own kayak or rent one from me for $5, and join in the fun. We meet at Mona Lake Park at 8am and paddle from 8:30-10:30 around Mona Lake. 125 people have RSVP that they are going. That many kayaks will be a sight to see. Thanks and happy paddling!
