What the Fox Waterway calls the lower river only extends from the McHenry dam to the Algonquin dam so when they say the lower river is closed it doesn't include below the Algonquin dam.

I would call local authorities or the DNR and ask.

The launch on Williams Road in C'Ville was closed on Monday with a barricade. The barricade was gone Thursday when I launched there. Not sure if KCFP opened it up or if someone threw the thing in the river as has happened in the past.

MONDAY, APRIL 28--Notice has been received from the IDNR that water levels have reached a level to warrant lifting of the restricted (closed) status on the lower river, below Stratton Lock & Dam. The FWA has imposed a "No Wake" status, as high water and debris still remains. Caution is advised while navigating.

Caution! Significant DEBRIS remains in the system. Please be extra cautious on and around bridges as currents and other conditions may be more dangerous, and may trap debris. Partially submerged items may also be present.
