Canoeing the Deertail Creek,
Creek- Rusk County-7 miles. A
trip on the lower Deer Tail is for
those who want to "pioneer it'".
Water levels should be medium or better
for a pleasant trip. During low flows
there are many difficult shallows.
Canvas shoes or hip boots are a good
idea anytime. Expect to scramble over
a few fallen trees. The average trip
by canoe takes about three hours,
or much longer if serious fishing
is done. Put in is off the Hwy 27
bridge, 5 miles south of Ladysmith.
Take out for this trip is the Cty.
Hwy D bridge.
