North & South Forks

The North and South Forks of the Flambeau River provide the perfect setting for those that want a leisurely flat water paddle and also for those looking to step up their adventure and whitewater canoe and kayak. For maps of the river by section, go to the Paddle the Flambeau website. For information on canoe campsites, go to North Fork canoe campsites or South Fork canoe campsites.

Fishing the Flambeau
For paddlers looking to wet a line, you’ll find that the rivers have low fishing pressure for Walleye, Musky, Bass and other species.

The best sections of the North Fork of the Flambeau River for canoe and kayak fishing for Smallmouth Bass are the sections from the Turtle-Flambeau Flowage to the Agenda boat landing, Hwy 13 Bridge to the Pixley Dam, and the Pixley Dam to Crowley Flowage. The best time of year for Smallmouth is early July to early September (Skip Sommerfeldt - DNR Fisheries Biologist/retired).
