Illinois River – November 23, 2014
This was supposed to be a two-day Illinois trip, but on Friday night it dumped rain and the water shot up and over 6,000 cfs. We woke up in the morning and decided to run the Green Bridge stretch of the Illinois to Six Mile Access. The miles went by quickly and soon we were back in Selma waiting for Sunday to arrive. The water dropped through the night and in the morning it was falling below 3,000 cfs. Launched from Miami Bar and we got to Oak Flat take out just before dark and then took Bear Camp back over. All in all a tiring trip but worthwhile!
