Our rivers are always gorgeous places to spend some time, especially for fishing, photography even when too low to paddle. I recommend the Rib river above the Highway 64 bridge when water is higher and below the Rib River Dells for a better flow. The Yellow River is great in all it's sections and I paddle some that others don't so call me on this one. Both have easy access but little development. Lots of wildlife to be seen. Eagles, otter, beaver, water fowl and shore birds, song birds. I saw a Pine Martin on the Rib last week and found an Eagle pellet on the bank. I learned that Eagles digestive system dissolves bones so only hair remains in the pellet. Fox and maybe even a wolf and dear will be seen near shore. Fishing on Chequamegon Waters (Miller Dam) is good and the Mondeaux Lake and the river to Co. Highway D is beautiful and usually paddlable.
