Default wading

The river is a little on the low side if thats what your wondering but i would always use extreme caution when wading the kankakee especially areas your not familiar with.

If you are new to the k3 area I would suggest a staff and solid boots. The DCA is wadeable at the current water levels which are right about normal for this time of year. If you go to http://waterwatch.usgs.gov/?m=real&r=il&w=map this is the IL map. Check the flow rate at Wilmington and if the value is below 2500cfs most areas are safe to wade.Please remember I said most areas and use that wading staff. Good luck and have fun.
