Lock and Dam 9 & Pool 9
Pool No. 9 on the Mississippi River stretches from the lock and dam south of Lynxville north to Genoa. Travel Hwy. 35, the Great River Road, and enjoy this huge body of water. During migrations, hundreds of thousands of ducks can be seen from the many pull-off areas located along the highway. Good numbers of Tundra Swans use the area as do American White Pelicans. Turkey Vultures, hawks and Bald Eagles soar on the thermal air currents along the bluffs. The Cold Springs Boat Landing north of Lynxville is a good place to watch water birds of all kinds.
