Winter Kayaking on the Fox River

Balmy January days in Wisconsin meant more open water on the Fox River.   My friend Terry and I went out how much water was open and check out the ice when the temps topped 40 degrees last week.   The Fox River is the only open water nearby in the winter.  Many winters when the temps are colder the river freezes solid.  We went about a mile before soft ice stopped our progress.

I do not recommend paddling in the Winter.  There are real dangers if you get wet.  It’s not a time to be messing around in tippy little boats.
