Have a look at (or shield your eyes, I suppose) at the Little Maquoketa River – a trip rich in potential but poor as dirt in reward unless you enjoy getting in and out of your boat a hundred times. In the unlikely event that you can paddle this with “just right” water levels and have the skills to handle hairpin turns, this could be a magnificent trip in the heart of the Iowa Driftless. In the much more likely scenario that it will be too shallow to paddle (90% of the time), don’t even bother. (Adjust to 1080p for the best picture).

Where is the gauge for this or is there a visual? how do you know it is too low?
