(KMOV) -- The high waters on the Mississippi River will keep boaters dry this holiday weekend.
The Coast Guard has closed the river from the Chain of Rocks Canal down to the MacArthur Bridge.
Missouri Water Patrol encourages recreational boaters to avoid the river entirely because they said it is simply too dangerous right now.
