Abstract

The West Fork of the Des Moines River is a non-meandered stream. That means the stream bed and banks of the river are considered part of the adjacent property. River users on these “non-meandered” segments may have only the right to float on the water surface, depending on ownership. The river is used for canoeing, kayaking, fishing and tubing. Water levels generally do not support the use of motor boats or jet skis, but occasional use occurs during high water events. There are currently no liveries or boat rental businesses serving this portion of the West Fork of the Des Moines River.
