Canoeing the Yellow River, Wisconsin

Expert paddler Mike Svob has been canoeing and kayaking the rivers of the Midwest for 30 years. He paddled more than a thousand miles to complete these books. Below are brief descriptions of the canoe trips that Mike goes into detail with in his books with maps. The maps are very useful, showing rapids, take in and take out points and other things of interest.

Yellow-Miller Dam to County H-Taylor County-16 miles. This is an intimate and scenic stretcc of river, with many riffles and rapids.Water levels are best in spring. Put in below the dam right behind Miller Dam Resort.The river begins narrow and winding with one riffle, Class I rapids and rock ledge after another.. After Beaver Creek Drive bridge the river widens.At 7.5 miles you approach Gilman where there is a village park and campground just below an old stone building. Out of town you come across a long series of Class I-II boulder gardens extending for a mile. Quiet deepwater follows then a series of Class I rapids with several small islands. Small rapids and riffles are the norm until you take out downstream left from the Hwy. H bridge.
