ATTENTION: Because of fluctuations in river levels, the water sometimes flows higher and faster than we deem safe. Trips will sometimes need to be cancelled but rebooking or refunds will be provided. More information on water levels can be found at the USGS site for Wisconsin or Illinois. Please check back frequently or contact us for more info.

Lower Kinnickinnic

The lower canyon of the Kinnickinnic River is a natural spring-fed class I trout stream that runs from River Falls to the St. Croix River. The river has little to no development and is actively protected by the Kinnickinnic River Land Trust. The lower canyon has wider and swifter waters than the upper portion and has a few difficult turns along the way.
