Kayak the World Famous Brule River with Kinni Creek Outfitters.
The Brule has a pleasant small-river character in a gorgeous northwoods
setting. The surrounding landscape varies from high wooded banks in
small rolling hills, to dense northern lowland forest, and open
wetlands. Cedar, spruce, balsam fir, red pine, aspen, maple, birch, and
various thickets cover the river banks.
Whether you are in the mood for a peaceful float with the family or the
challenge of an exciting ride through whitewater, the Bois Brule River
in northern Wisconsin is an experience of a lifetime.This unique, 44-mile-long river varies from a meandering stream in a
conifer bog to a fast-flowing river with numerous rapids and ledges. It includes gentle stretches
for novices and rapids to challenge experienced paddlers.
Wildlife is abundant, especially in the morning and afternoon hours.
Paddlers are likely to see, white-tailed deer, beaver, muskrat, raccoon,
and river otter. Among the bird-life you are likely to see are, wood
duck, common merganser, belted kingfisher, spotted sandpiper, great blue
heron, and several species of warbler. The river is also a popular
trout stream with brown and brook trout frequently pulled from the many
pools scattered throughout the river's length.
Please use courtesy when on the river. Remember:
• Leave no trace
• Respect private property
• Pack out whatever you pack in
• Use quiet voices
• Show respect and sensitivity to others enjoying the river.
River flow (in cubic feet per second) and water levels can fluctuate
significantly in the lower (northern) section of the Bois Brule River.
Rain and snow melt can increase water flow and raise water levels
quickly, creating fast and dangerous conditions.
