We went to Sauk City area for the reported eagle watching in the area. As the river freezes, access to fish gets more limited and the eagles will congregate on the 1-2 mile stretch below the dam. January to February are the best times if the ice is built up and is also their mating period, so the acrobatics might... More

I go back and see friends I made decades ago and now our families have grown with the Wisconsin River. They come back and allow me to... More

We rented canoes from Blackhawk River Runs in Mazomania and paddled downstream to camp on a sandy island four hours later. Loved that spot: the Milky Way, no mosquitos, fish jumping, quiet. The next day we floated and paddled all day, stopping at Bob's Resort for lunch. Lots of people fishing, kayaking, sunbathing. We camped 24 miles downstream on a... More

Be careful with the current. A great place to hang with the family for the day. Many people rent tubes or boats to go down the river

I grew up on the Wisconsin River. Fishing, camping, Eagle and wildlife watching, you have it all. Very beautiful late winter.

Great location. Lots to see and do. Head to Sauk City Harley and ask how to get to Leland and the Schellter. Best fish and breed anywhere

My brother lives about 30 minutes from the river and he took my wife and I out for a tour. We had a wonderful time. We launched out of a public dock and found that to be wonderful. We boated around and finally went down the river and had a cookout. It was amazing. It was very busy but that... More
