    Back in ‘97 or ‘98 NEW and northern wisc in general, had an epic Winter, with tons of snow…. Back then, i used to come up to whitewater canoe the Wolf (and other rivers such as the Oconto, Pike, upper Pesh etc) several times a season…. I remember the Pesh being closed to paddlers in April or May, when everything was melting down…..methinks it was 40-50+ at the bridge…. Over on the Wolf, me and my buddy did Section 1 (Lily to Hollister), which was running 40+ at the ruler gage at the Langlade bridge, thinking Section 1 was no big deal compared to 3 and 4…. Welp, we were wrong! At those levels, even the little Class 1 rapids were monsters….we wiped out and i thought i was dead! Anyway, having said that, i’m quite sure all NEW whitewater rivers will be epic in the spring…. For the first time, I’m gonna try to organize a ww rafting trip with my boys and their friends/fathers, since they’re now old enough….

    Happy trails/paddlin’ and THINK [MORE] SNOW!!!!!
