Note: This reach has a 'split optimum' level. That is, reportedly, there is good play from 1350 cfs to 2500 cfs and again from 4200 cfs to 11,000 cfs (and beyond?). In an attempt to show this (within the constraints of the AW/SK system), I have used the lower set of numbers for the WI description, and the higher set for the MN description. It is recommended that boaters use the option to show rivers 'by drainage' (rather than just viewing the normal alpha-order list for each state) so you will view both descriptions. If either is highlighted green, the level is good. If WI is high (purple) and MN is low (orange), the flow is in that in-between range, where play is reportedly very poor.
Permits are not required for this reach.

If someone gets hurt on a river, or you read about a whitewater-related injury, please report it to
American Whitewater. Don't worry about multiple submissions from other witnesses, as our safety
editors will turn multiple witness reports into a single unified accident report.
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
