    I was wondering two things:

    1) Is it illegal to dam up a drainage ditch?

    2) Can I canoe down a river (the Wabash) without getting in trouble?

    1. Yes

    2. I don't see why not. I inner-tubed down the Wabash once, but that's up in Lafayette.

    I would think that if the cops came out to investigate the ditch being dammed up and see you paddling around like your going for a merit badge you might find yourself in trouble.

    Yes it is illegal to dam up a drainage ditch. The ditch is there to drain an area, and by damming it you are restricting the flow through said ditch.

    And it is totally legal to boat in rivers. The places where you get into trouble is if you get in the way of larger river traffic. However using the Wabash as your "for example" you should be fine.

    Ok. I don't think the damn with will work, but I still want to navigate the Wabash. I think that going to Huntington is a realistic goal, it's not like their are any other boat on the river, I doubt it gets more than 100 feet wide there.

    What's the width of the river have to do with anything? You should be more worried about speed and depth...
