Wolf River Kayaking
Wolf River – Wisconsin
The Wolf River is one of the most popular whitewater rivers in Wisconsin.
Consistent flow, plenty of whitewater, limited development, gorgeous scenery, clean
water, and excellent fishing; all these characteristics combine to make the Wolf
River a paddler's top Wisconsin destination.
Lily – Hollister
This segment features several long stretches of class 1 and 2 rapids and boulder
gardens ideal conditions for canoe and kayak skill development.
From Lily, the Wolf River meanders through long
pitches of easy boulder gardens and a few class 1
rapids. The first challenging whitewater occurs
when the river narrows and rushes through Big
Slough Gundy Rapids, a rocky class 2 and then
funnels into Little Slough Gundy Rapids. More
riffles followed by a series of easy boulder gardens
until reaching Hollister.
This is a fun and scenic run for novice whitewater paddlers with enough rapids to
keep it interesting.
Peshtigo River - Wisconsin
This segment can be quite fun for the novice, and intermediate level paddlers
seeking moderate challenges of low to medium hazard rapids and boulder gardens.
This river has it's own rugged, scenic character;
beautiful, rocky and narrow, with pine, cedar, and
hemlock trees frequently overhanging the banks.
The Peshtigo is one of my favorite day tripping
rivers. It always takes me back to my college days
traveling through the Black Forest of Germany.
The tannic waters, impenetrable darkness of the forest, cool breezes, overhanging
branches of the Nicolet National Forest; it truly is a magical experience. An excellent
section for those transitioning from flat water to moving water. Beginner and
intermediate level paddlers seeking moderate challenges of low to medium hazard
rapids and boulder gardens will enjoy this section of river.
Bois Brule: Hwy 13 Bridge - Lake Superior
Padlers will find a mostly flatwater run with one class 1
rapid and several long stretches of riffles. You will also
see some of the most beautiful river scenery in
Wisconsin, especially in the last several miles where the
river meanders through tall, steeply sloped hills covered
in aspen, birch, maple, pine, spruce and balsam fir. Lake
Superior provides a great finale.
As with previous sections, this stretch of river is popular amongst anglers, particularly
during spring. Wildlife continues to be abundant.
The meandering Bois Brule to Lake Superior is a great day trip for canoe and kayakers
wanting to get their “river legs” and experience a bit of class 1 whitewater rush. It’s an
awesome sensation rounding the final section of the Brule and entering the vast
expanse of Lake Superior. As the Brule winds its way to Lake Superior it offers a variety
of scenery and fantastic learning opportunities.
