Flambeau River - Thornapple Dam to Chippewa River
This stretch is perfect for beginners. The put-in is the Thornapple Dam. A small rapids in the first mile gives way to two miles of calm water. Upstream of Pine Island, you'll find a small set of rapids. Take the left channel around the island and enjoy five more miles of calm water as you paddle downstream towards the confluence and the take-out at Flater's Resort, just upstream from the Forks.
