Excellent water! Worth the trip! MAny other designated streams in the area worth wading as well!

THere is quite the history in that area, regarding the "Wisels"! Maybe someday I can share it!

LEt me know how you do!

Interesting, my inlaws have land and camping area on that stretch of stream. What is the story behind the "Wisels?"

IN short,

The Wisels resided stream side at the turn of the century. During the "100 years" flood, a large log jam upstream on the South Fork of the Root jammed up the flow creating a huge wall of water when it broke free!
The Wisels were swept away. SOmesay..including myself that on quiet evenings walking the streams in that valley you can still hear the cries of Mrs. Wisel, being pulled down stream on her bed mattress!!

Jim W,

would you be able to tell the full story via email or direct me to where I could find out more about this tale? Is it true? Please! I'm very interested.

email me at: corey_schmiedeberg (at) hotmail (dot) com

Thanks!
PS is your last name Wisel?
