I do appreciate you posting GPS data. It's interesting to see the streams on the satellite images. Looks like you stopped on the beach at 5.7 miles -- for lunch???
Yes. this river has lots of acre+ sized sand bars and very nice clear water (too cold for swimming as yet) . This was a new trip for me since I just bought Paddling S Wisconsin and Paddling N Wisconsin canoeing guides . This trip was on one of the recommended routes in S Wisconsin (S of hwy 29) . Might be busy in hi summer but I saw no one for all 13 miles .
The 9 mile option to cty rd D would be a very family friendly day out (with a 7 mile bike shuttle) . Let me know if you would like to borrow the books or have me email a page or two out of them to you
Ian, I assume you have the Svob books, excellent resources. What do you think, could you camp on the sandbanks, in a pinch? Always looking to put together a 2-3 day easy trip for late fall.
Yes. I have the Svob books. The sand banks on the Eau Claire river are of 3 types : a) islands - fairly flat and long and narrow b) outside of bends (very steep 45 degrees and eroding c) inside of bends large , broad and flat
You can see them on the satellite photos they stand out as white .(see my GPS track in satellite view mode) Not sure what the water level would be late in the season.
