Paddle the Flambeau River in Price and Rusk Counties

South Fork, Fifield to County Highway F - 12 miles, 5 hours

The first half of this paddle has a meandering character - the second half has some challenging whitewater

Put in at the Highway 70 bridge in Fifield. Two miles downstream from Fifield, you’ll pass the Highway 13 bridge, another place that makes a great put-in. The river is calm for the next 3 miles until you reach Simons Rapids, a relatively easy set of rapids. Just 2 1/2 miles later is Boars Rapids, a more challenging set of rapids. About a mile downstream of Boars Rapids is Rock Ledge Rapids, which is also exciting. Rocky Carry, a very challenging set of rapids, is another mile downstream. Paddle carefully. Take out at the County Highway F bridge about a mile downriver.
