A tributary of the Rock River, Turtle Creek winds its way for over 30 miles from Turtle Lake near Delavan, Wisconsin to the Rock River in South Beloit, Illinois. This scenic waterway offers great opportunities for paddling, tubing, fishing, and wildlife. During our paddle we will also encounter Tiffany Bridge, a historic, hand-built, 5-arch limestone railroad bridge and one of the most photographed historic icons in Rock County.We realize we have lower than average water levels right now.

Second event for @kayakbassleague, held at Banner Marsh, is in the books. Rocktown Adventures Fishing Team member @titusdominguez bested a field of 50 to take home first place. We taught him all he knows! (Actually we didn't teach him jack!) Nice work man. That is a talented group of anglers that caught a lot fish. #gearupheadout #kayakfishing #kayakbassfishing #jacksonkayak

For ease of use and all day fun on the water, it is hard to beat a Stand Up Paddle Board. And when they are inflatable, you don't have to worry about how to transport them.....they come in a bag! While we do not have much left in kayaks, we have some Inflatable SUPs waiting for you. Don't let the inflatable part fool you. I am an equipment snob, and a good inflatable paddles as well as a hard top. Available for sale or rent!#geraupheadout #SUPlife #getoutside
