We’re Hitting all rivers in Winnebago County, plus hitting the Fox during our annual Fall Paddling series this October!
Our Fall paddling group outings include all the outdoor equipment you need (or you can bring your own) as well as a refresher on paddling strokes and safety, experienced guides, a relaxed social setting for you to meet like-minded people, and the opportunity to take on new challenges and outdoor adventures. When paddling later in the year, it is important to pay attention to the combined air and water temperature. The baseline is 120 degrees combined. Anything below that, and various levels of protective clothing are required. The good news is we paddle smaller rivers, so we are never far from shore! It is rare that a “swim” occurs, but we need to be prepared just in case. If protective clothing is required due to temps on any of these adventures, we will be sure to reach out to all participants.
If you would like to join in on one our Fall Paddling Trips, we are going on the below dates (click locations to register):
Oct. 2: Kishwaukee River
Oct. 3: Fox River w/ Kane County Forest Preserve Naturalist
Oct. 9: Turtle Creek
Oct. 10: Sugar River
Oct. 16: Rock River Fur Trader’s Run
You can register for any of these experiences by clicking the event listing (above), visiting our events page, giving us a call at (815) 636-9066, or dropping by our store in Rockford, IL. We will run multiple shuttles for our upcoming Fall paddle outings when group size dictates, so launch time may take a little longer than usual. All equipment is disinfected and cleaned prior to going out so you can be ensured of safe and clean gear. And if the weather does not cooperate? No worries, you get a full refund.
There’s still two months left in paddle season and plenty of time to experience the outdoors on the water – We hope to see you on an adventure this Fall!
