Just you and me Memorial weekend
This was our first of many visits to the Fox River north of Princeton
Flow at gauge 04073500 Fox River at Berlin: 1450 cfs (median for this date 780 cfs)
Put in/take out at end of St. Marie Road (no concrete ramp but easy put in and room to park a few cars – no facilities) Went right, upstream (which is south because the Fox flows north) to Highway 23 bridge in Princeton by city park and ice cream shop, then back downstream. Beautiful quiet 1.5-hour paddle, through mostly wooded wild surroundings, under an interesting old railroad bridge that used to swivel. Water fairly high.
Wildlife: lots of kingfishers, one eagle, cranes
Afterward drove to Montello to have dinner and hear Joy play at More Healthy Food.
This area is a section of Fox River 1 in Paddling Southern Wisconsin
Flow at Berlin gauge 04073500: 1760 cfs (median 850 cfs)
Put in/take out at County Highway O bridge. There is room to park, no bathrooms. High water. Windy start. Turned into perfect day. Many paddlers.
Afterwards we went to look at Mecan River (probably not for us) and Princeton, WI launches.
