Default wading for first time? where for best results?

Lookin for some spots to wade, (never waded before). How is the area right off I55 or even say rock creek? I don't want to wade near damns yet as I need to get used to wading and the feeling for it.

Thanks for any advice

Kank is a very hard to wade for bigginers esspecialy right off I55 . I wont recomend it for a first time. If You decide to try it make sure You will have a partner. Also polarized glasses helps . I would try creeks or backwaters first. DPR will be my bet to get used to wading. Good luck.

The area around Prairie Creek is predominately slab rock with a few pockets here and there to watch out for. If the water is clear enough and you have decent polarized glasses you should be ok.

I would recommend momence..the entire area of island park east of the tracks is very even terrain
West of the tracks there is some quicker water channeling off of an isle.. but its no more than waist deep the entire park. I've pretty much waded every inch of it since childhood.
