Bear River

Tranquil, unspoiled, with good opportunities to see wildlife. Much of its 25-mile course passes through the Lac du Flambeau Chippewa Reservation. Upper portion is narrow with steady current through pine forests; lower stretch passes through Powell Marsh narrowing again before joining the Manitowish River as it enters the Turtle-Flambeau Flowage. Low hazard riffles. Several access points off town roads.
