River Description

Mostly flatwater, punctuated by a couple short drops. Generally more likely an open-boat trip. Trip may be shortened using alternate accesses.

(Note: Observations and 'minimums' based on only one trip on this reach, when Neillsville gauge was at 946 cfs. That seemed a fairly low level. The flat stretches were generally quite slow, and the couple of drops were runnable but not particularly interesting. Do this one only if you're looking to tally another river in your boater log book, or to see every bit of known whitewater in the state. If you're looking for anything like real river-running or playboating whitewater, better to look elsewhere.)

Gage Descriptions

*Gauge listed is on Black River proper, well upstream of the confluence with this tributary. Runs on this reach will be interesting only when that gauge is running high. Specific correlations have not been determined, but probably are at least on the order of 5.0'.
