Right now, conditions are very good on most stretches of the Flambeau River. There are some low spots on the stretch just below the Turtle Flambeau Flowage, but elsewhere, the water levels are prime for paddling. Water temperatures are rather warm—perfect for stopping for a swim. If you’ve never canoed or kayaked the Flambeau River before, you’re in for a treat. It’s a beautiful river, with heavily forested banks and lots of wildlife. Get up to the Flambeau River now for some of the best paddling of the year.
