Boating not suggested over the holiday weekend

Posted by wlpo on September 2, 2016

The Illinois River is falling but that doesn’t mean its safe for you to take your boat out on it this weekend.

Conservation Police Sgt. Phil Wire says doing that is “not a smart idea.” Wire says the river is still moving very fast and with that debris is flowing quickly. Wire says you’ll likely hit the debris because it’ll be too late when and if you see it.

Despite Wire’s warning, there are no boating restrictions in place on the Illinois River.
