This river is great for beginners and/or causal float trips. The river is deep for this part of Illinois and it is wide. Navigation is a breeze on the this part of the river. Stringers are kept to minimum and easily maneuvered around.
My buddy and I did not float; we went at a pretty good pace. We got out at Vandalia at the boat ramp. This is a 24.75 mile trip. With a few short breaks to stretch and eat the trip took 6.5 hours. If you are looking for a shorter trip there is a county road that would cut the trip down to roughly 10 miles.
