Chippewa River

Rich in history and scenic beauty, the river is navigable for most of its length from the Holcombe Flowage south to the Mississippi River. Water levels are occassionally subject to rapid fluctuation - check locally. The 40-mile stretch below the dam at Eau Claire is generally gentle to moderate with adequate flow. Random portages may be necessary in dry weather or late on Sunday when dams up-river are drawn-up. Access is available at road crossings and developed landings. The last twelve miles run through the 13,000-acre Tiffany Wildlife Area.
