Paddle the Flambeau River in Price and Rusk Counties

The North Fork of the Flambeau

  The North Fork of the Flambeau River takes on a variety of moods as it flows southward from the Turtle-Flambeau Flowage towards its confluence with the Chippewa. There are stretches that are brawling whitewater as well as stretches of wide, slow-moving flowages. Rock formations, fantastic scenery and excellent fishing make the North Fork a favorite among paddlers.

Water is available at the following landings: Nine Mile, Dix Dox, Highway W (there is a spigot behind the forest office), Camp 41, Fishermans, and Hervas.
