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.

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.
Offseason ('Ice') gauge conversions:
4.27 = 500cfs
Permits are not required for this reach.
