River Description


Rocky rapids in a wide river. Take-out is figured at the Grand Ave bridge in Neillsville though there are likely better options available.

An anonymous contributor provides:
Mostly flat water with a few shallow class I rapids until about 1 mile north of Neillsville.

I have no personal knowledge of this reach at present. 'Minimum level' assumed based on one trip on the next reach downstream.

If you can provide some details, either use the "Add a Comment" button (on the "Comments" tab page), or volunteer on the StreamTeam for this (and any other) reach.

Drainage area at our listed put-in is approximately 627 sq.mi. (as calculated via USGS StreamStats Beta software).

Drainage area at the USGS gauge is 749 square miles, so (on average) we might expect flow at the put-in to be about 5/6ths of gauge reading.
