Canoe trip recommendations in WI

Recommended Posts

Spent some time 'reflecting' the other day and realized I only went on one canoe trip last year frown.gif Would like to revisit some old river sections and hit a new one as well. Thought it might be worthwhile to start up a thread on canoe trips FM'ers would recommend in WI.

Myself, I'd like to hit the Brule and some info on that would be great. For a recommendation, I like the Red Cedar River for both scenery and fishing - anywhere from Rice Lake down to say Colfax is great. Another great section is the lower Chippewa River, especially from Durand down to Wabasha in the bluff country. So, where's your favorite float?

FAvorite float trip would have to be the chippewa river from Meridean or even Carryville down to Durand. 2 day trip usually, with a campsite on a sandbar for a night. Lots of smallies a few eyes' pike, and occasional muskie to boot. Lots of rough fish if you care to stop and fish live bait. Nice scenery as cooter said, and hardly see another boat especially during the week... usually like to take the flat bottom 14' rather than canoe... easier on gear, and easier to get back upstream to cast a productive stretch of water...\

As for a strictly canoe trip, I'd say the Flambeau around the Ladysmith area would top my list.

Happy Fishing

I'm thinking of doing a float trip near the end of August with my son and was told the Namekogan would be better than the Upper St.Croix. Thinking of putting in near Howell's landing, camping along the way and pulling out at Danbury. What kind of water level should we expect that time of year and how should the fishing be?

Any advice/info appreciated.
