Profile

I have come to know the Pine and Popple Rivers of NE Wisconsin, from tip-top to tail. I know them mostly by open canoe (hundreds of trips) but also by foot, by bike, by car and plane, by book, map, study, and, of course, by people. I love knowing these two rivers well.

Reports give the public a chance to report on river conditions throughout the country as well as log the history of a river.
