Lake Erie to Lake St. Clair

This may be a really stupid question, but it won't be the first time. We are heading from Lake Erie to Cheboygan, MI this weekend. Is it adviseable or mandatory to follow the upbound channel when heading north on the Detroit River?

Thanks,

Rick Morrison

you can go up either chanel however stay in the chanel north of Grosse Ile. out side the chanels is very shalow and will cause a grounding hit if you draw over 2 to 3 foot.
