Due to the recent heavy rainfalls for the Fox River Basin area which has resulted in significantly higher water flows, water levels and cold water temperatures, the Outagamie County Sheriff's Department has issued a "BOATING ADVISORY". This advisory is to notify the boating public to be extra cautious when using the Fox River within Outagamie County. This is to prevent injuries to boaters that may be caused from fast moving water near dams and spillways, damage to boats from striking partial submerged debris moving with the current, striking submerged hazards and hypothermia from the cold water temperatures. This advisory is to be considered temporary and will be monitored by the Outagamie County Sheriff's Department.
