Default wilmington RR bridge


I am looking at trying to figure out the depths around the piers at this bridge. Is this section of the river navigable by aluminum boat? Looking at google maps it appears the river is almost rapids from the dam down to the railroad bridge past I-55. Any input would be appreciated.

Much of that area is wadable, but you will not be able to get a boat through there. there is no place to legally launch anywhere around there, and you would tear up your boat anyways.
Go in from north island park, just south of the tracks and wade upstream.

You can launch and fish near desplains conservation area near I55. But you can only take a boat up to that RR bridge. Rest is down stream to Desplains/Ill river merge.
