Wisconsin River North (for intermediate skilled paddlers)
Take Highway HH West out of Stevens Point (approximately 4 miles) and you will find a boat landing on the right side of the road. Put in here and head back towards Stevens Point. As you proceed downstream, the islands to your left are surrounded by channels. The adventurous canoeist may wish to poke around the islands, spend some time fishing, bird watching or animal viewing. All channels headed south open into the Stevens Point Flowage and back to the main channel. In the Flowage, go under the power lines and take out at the boat landing near the swimming beach in Bukolt Park on the left. Try following the Green Circle Trail segment to Pfiffner Pioneer Park to walk along the riverfront. Across the river, you will see K.A.S.H. playground at Mead Park. At the southernmost tip of Pfiffner Park, you will encounter the Riverfront Arts Center. Downtown Stevens Point, just one block east offers a variety of specialty shops, dining, historical murals and other attractions.
The Stevens Point Flowage is located between Lake DuBay and the city of Stevens Point. This Wisconsin River reservoir provides 3,900 acres of prime fishing water. Even though 50-inch muskies are extremely rare on even the best musky water, you have a realistic chance of catching one on this flowage.
