If you want to see plenty of exciting wild life creatures up close……………plan a kayak trip on the Fox River in the Summer months. On a recent 3 hour kayak expedition during the month of August, one can plan to see and photograph large mouth bass jumping out of the water after flies and smaller flying creatures. Turtles swimming around the lily pads close to the river banks. Carp spawning in the creamy mud banks alongside the river.
In addition to the many underwater animals you’ll see many large flying birds such as Blue Herons, swallows and cranes hunting alongside the river banks for small insects and fish. As you round each bend and turn on the river you never know what to expect or what you will see. A true adventure awaits you on the Fox River in McHenry County, Illinois.
