I love this river... beautiful!! Great way for family and friends to spend the day. However, If you've never been down a river don't underestimate it, can be speedy at times and dangerous. I've seen many people who have never been on a river struggle with their families trying to stay afloat.
This is one of the best rivers in North America in my book! Clean clear water, abundant fish and wildlife all around. Great for water sports especially kayaking, canoeing, and floating on inter tubes as well as just sitting along the bank for quiet time.
Not for the novice paddler...lots of twists and turns, but beautiful nonetheless. This river is what #PureMichigan is all about. We went in October after the leaves were already falling. After spawning in the fall, the King Salmon die, and there was HUNDREDS along the shore. Smell was horrible. But it was also cool seeing all the live ones still...
