The water was low and that is why it got a rating of moderate plus it was a little tricky getting in and out. We had to do a little portaging over a few shallow spots but nothing big. We started the trip at about 11am and slowly paddled and fished along the way catching mostly little bluegill. I think it was about 5-6 miles in all.
Along the way we saw many bluffs/rocks hanging out over the water. We stopped and ate lunch on a large rock that over looked the little river. At this point we could see 1/4 mile in both directions. The only strait part we came across. About 2/3 the way through the trip we came across an old rope swing that little like it might have been fun if the water was up and in a little newer condition.
The last 1/3 of the trip we really fished more than kayaked. I ended up catching a nice 5lbs catfish. In the shallows the water was really running fast for central IL, at times I didn't even have to paddle (which is good around here). We never came across any other bridges except for when we put in and when we took out. We got off the Little Wabash at about 7PM just off HWY 32/33.
We took out just before we got to HWY 33/32. There was a little creek we walked up that met with N 1200th where we were parked and we took out.
