The once great Kankakee Marsh has been drained...partially by channelizing the kankakee river.

I have heard no real reports of paddling on the Kankakee river, but I would think that channelizing the river would speed it up and make any snags more dangerous for paddlers.

I look forward to some reports on this river. For more info on the river check out http://www.indianaoutfitters.com/kankakee_river.html

Dropped in at 49 with my brother and sister-in-law, only 1 guy fishing from that spot, there were very few snags along the 14 plus miles we paddled. Current was about 1.7 mph we did the trip to the Grand Kankakee Marsh as we got closer that the pull out we had more fishermen but all were very curtious, made for a pleasant paddle.
