One of my favorite places to hike and float in Southern Illinois. It is also the only true whitewater run in this part of the state. It is about a mile and a half hike to this part of the canyon.

Thanks fellas, very few places like this in SO IL unfortunately. I wish there was some water flow, we need some rain badly.

very sweet spot.....we have kayaked Lusk twice once it was epic and at a high stage.....the next time we went it was low and we actually caught a ton of 14 to 15 inch largemouth.....both were good trips and that is a very beautiful area for sure. nice pics Andy :have-a-nice-day: we tried our best to catch a smallie but didn't....although I think there is another creek in the vicinity that has a few????? rumors???? I would love to catch one over there....kinda my White Whale

Real cool, I've been curious as to what some of those S. Illinois streams look like.  Hopefully the rain/snow over the past few days has improved flow.

 

 

Thanks for sharing.
