Water levels have risen on the St Croix River!!! We went from 3’5″ to 7’3″ because of all the rain we have received in the last few days. Rapids are class 2’s with standing waves of 3 -4 ft. Lots of ups and downs through the rapids. It’s perfect for kayaking with skirts which we have for our solo kayaks. In a canoe, one could get swamped by the waves!!!! There are lots of stretches of river though that do not have rapids and paddling is great.
The river usually comes down within a few days so through the week and next weekend should be fast water with less rock n’ rollin’. Sun is shining – it is a beautiful day on the river.
