Has anyone launched a boat at Momence?
How deep is river in this area?
Will a 17 foot bass boat work?
Is the launch itself sound?
Have launched many times east of State Park around Hoffman Island.
Have had good luck, even with a 16 foot V.
Just get out and push once in awhile.

We have launched there before, and it is not bad. I think the cement stops short of the water, but it is rocky so you can easily launch. You can really only head upstream, as the dam is just downstream from the launch. But of course the dam helps keep the water level up.

There are some islands in the river there, I believe you keep to the "north" side of the river and you'll be OK. The homeowners have boats in this area, so if you keep by them that is a good sign too.

Let us know how you do!

Do any of you guys fish around the I 57 area by boat? I have been wanting to try that area but never hear anything about it.
