Places to Paddle: Wisconsin’s Bois Brule River

29 Jun

The Bois Brule in northwestern Wisconsin is world-famous amongst paddlers for the magical upper river which flows through secluded woodsy bogs, and then turns into a fun whitewater playground. The river runs towards Lake Superior falling 328 feet in eighteen miles, making for some exciting paddling (especially when the water is high) as the water rushes over rocks and ledges rush amidst wooded river bluffs. The lower Brule boasts over 80 rapids but there are family-friendly quiet stretches as well. Bois Brule River Fishing includes trout, steelhead, chinook and coho salmon. Check out the Wis DNR web site for more about the Brule River State Forest.
