I was wondering about a boat launch on Blackhawk Island. Is there a public one? As a secondary concern, is the river deep enough for a 16ft boat w/a 35 hp motor? I get up that way every so often & I've driven past the area. It looks fishy. Thanks 5
There is a boat launch by the Rockford Airport which I beleive is called Blackhawk Is. The launch is where the old ace of diamonds used to be. That is kind of a tricky launch. The concrete goes out a few feet and then just drops off. You can break your axil if your not careful. There are some shallow sections but you should be OK with the 35hp when the water is up like it is now. Good luck and post your results.
