Montreal River - West Branch

For most of its length, the Montreal River forms the border between Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Under high-water conditions, it is one of the Midwest's most challenging whitewater kayak rivers. Site of the 1994 ICF Junior World Kayak Championships. Water levels fluctuate greatly by season. Class II-Class V rapids and numerous falls. The lower portion flows through 300' deep Montreal River Canyon. Take out at Hwy 122 near Lake Superior. NOTE: This river has not been officially surveyed. For expert kayakers only. Low-water conditions make the river impassable.
