The spring kayaking season is roaring down the White River outside Lake Geneva this year, with the resent heavy rains, the river is really ripping. The launching place most of the local kayaks take off from is on Sheridan Springs Road in the Township of Lyons. Going north on Sheridan Springs Road outside of Lake Geneva from Edwards Boulevard the first two bridges are where most locals launch from.
The most exciting run down the river is where the elevation drops 9 feet over a mile and a half. That is the section through Duane Clark’s 190 acre Copper Kettle Ranch which soon will be a Walworth County natural recreation area.
