Introduction, A Badger Stream Love Affair, My fascination with rivers started near my hometown of Osage Iowa on the Cedar River High school buddies and I. fished the river and canoe camped along its lovely limestone bluffs In 1969 I graduated from St Olaf College in. Minnesota and soon paddled my first Wisconsin stream With my college sweetheart I spent three days and two. nights canoe camping from Taylors Falls to Stillwater on the St Croix River Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond blared. from our transistor radio as we floated this lovely stream which was designated a National Wild and Scenic River in. 1968 Little did I know I would eventually explore more than 300 other Wisconsin streams. In the late 1970s I was preoccupied by my medical studies in Milwaukee but did find the time to explore some rivers. I recall canoeing the Oconto Chippewa Kickapoo Illinois Fox and West Twin Rivers during those years Several of. us traveled to the Peshtigo River and rafted Roaring Rapids with a commercial company At the time I could not. imagine riding this torrent in a canoe We also rafted Piers Gorge on the Menomonee River Our guide failed to. avoid Volkswagen Rock over Mishicot Falls We flipped and I experienced the second worst swim of my life Was I. deterred from whitewater Just the opposite it seems. By the late 1970s I was a practicing physician but I found time for Wisconsin rivers In 1979 I signed up for the. tandem whitewater clinic run by the River Touring Section of the Sierra Club s John Muir Chapter After learning. about whitewater strokes and tactics from the Burtons and the Bindrichs I was forever hooked on whitewater and. was also beginning to appreciate the unique beauty of Wisconsin s rivers Like many others I soon switched from. tandem to solo whitewater canoeing Being the captain of one s own fate in a solo canoe is too tempting for most. of us Weekends often found me paddling whitewater streams like the Wolf the Red and the Pike with fellow. But unlike most of my buddies I was also drawn to quiet water and I realized I liked to explore new streams by. myself I was developing a strong desire to see what was around the next bend on multiple rivers in Wisconsin and. beyond In 1983 Bob Diggelman Pat Brennaman and I began a tradition which lasted nearly 30 years Joined by a. cast of characters which changed through the years we explored more than 50 Class III and IV Appalachian streams. between Pennsylvania and Alabama Scott and Susan Watson were with us more of those years than were the others. As time passed several of us also undertook major expeditions on far north Canadian rivers like the Burnside and. the South Nahanni Many rivers in the American West like the Middle Fork of the Salmon and the Grand Canyon of. the Colorado were added to our river lists But Wisconsin streams always lured me back My own list began to. include more and more streams in the Badger State, In 1982 I realized I had already paddled quite a few Wisconsin streams and I decided to count them To my surprise. the total was nearly 100 From that point I kept a running total and began to take notes on my adventures. Eventually I began to write about these experiences which were mostly solo day trips My 100th Wisconsin stream was. Sawyer County s Teal River in 1983 In 1996 I paddled my 200th stream which was Paint Creek near Chippewa Falls I. kept counting but had no idea I would reach 300 In 1998 I reached another milestone That November I paddled. Walworth County s Mukwonago River into Lulu Lake Prior to that day I had paddled at least one river in all of. Wisconsin s 72 counties except Walworth, I have loved so many things about this crazy quest It has been fun deciding which stream to explore next and which. section I always enjoy the logistical planning including which shuttle mode to use Every conceivable method to get. back to my vehicle at the put in has been in my repertoire Included have been hitch hiking mountain biking. jogging and cross country skiing The challenge of pulling my canoes over and around hundreds if not thousands of. woody obstructions like fallen trees and beaver dams is something I actually enjoy most of the time. My appreciation for the beauty of Wisconsin rivers grew ever greater I noted with dismay the many ways our. streams have been neglected and abused I also became a student of the stream natural history The streamside. flora fascinated me but I especially enjoyed studying the bedrock and glacial geology which moving water reveals. Eventually I was giving slide show presentations around the state which stressed geology but included other natural. features human history and also trip recommendations. April 14 2007 was a momentous day for me With a flotilla of fellow paddlers I floated the East Twin River from. Mishicot to Two Rivers Following the trip a luncheon was held to celebrate the completion of my goal of navigating. 300 Wisconsin rivers At a restaurant in downtown Two Rivers I was presented a plaque by the city s mayor and the. president of the city council which commemorated my accomplishment Since that day of have added several new. ones but am pretty sure I will never reach 400, It may be that no one else has paddled 300 streams in any other single state Stream rich Wisconsin may be the. only state where such a feat is even possible That said I can truthfully say that my odyssey was more about the. journey than the goal In the process I developed a love affair for the Badger State and its rivers which will last as. long as I live, Thanks to all of you for supporting the River Alliance of Wisconsin The work of this organization has been.
indispensible to the health of Wisconsin streams Thanks also for being here to help launch that organization s. website link to my river descriptions I hope at least some of you will utilize the site to help you discover a Wisconsin. stream you may have wondered about Perhaps it will be a gem near where you live. Richard Kark, Asheville North Carolina, So Many Rivers. This compilation of 300 summaries of river excursions small and large rivers short and long the excursions. is a remarkable accomplishment Even more remarkable is the effort and commitment that led to its creation. Somewhere somehow he doesn t make it clear here Rick Kark decided he would paddle as many Wisconsin. streams as he could get his canoes into taking careful notes each time of the flora fauna and underlying. geology of the river he was traveling He includes the useful logistical information paddlers come to expect. from these publications but Rick adds color and insight and good humor to each of his entries making this. compendium the most useful and the most entertaining of any I have read. I m not sure Rick coined this adage he uttered to me one time or if he read it on a bumper sticker Whatever. its origin you can see how it might become the rallying cry for paddling 300 streams in Wisconsin. I brake for bridges, Any river rat knows this phenomenon You are driving along and you see a bridge You slow down then. quickly turn your head right and left to see what potential the stream you just drove over might have Is it. navigable Where does it flow What are its origins What is its story. These questions and a keen sense of adventure drove Rick to explore these Wisconsin streams and catalog his. experiences With a boat tied on top and a bike racked on the back of his car or jogging shoes in his dry bag. Rick would sometimes drive over a bridge pull over and stop and throw in his boat to see where the stream. would lead him Others were more carefully planned What is especially impressive in these days of GPS and. Google Maps is that Rick wandered up and down these rivers yes UP many streams he made round trips. on without the kind of minute detail we now expect to have before slipping a boat into the water. Rick was not after setting some Guinness record or scoring bragging rights for how many streams he d. vanquished This was not a contest or a race It was a three plus decade odyssey rooted in the sheer joy of. paddling and a deep appreciation for rivers, There are some truly obscure streams Rick writes up that may not have seen a single paddler on them since he. dipped his paddle into them in the early 1990s But there are no doubt many of them that will tempt and. beckon you Do take note though that conditions will have changed on many of the rivers Rick describes. here The count roughly 306 is a count of the number of discretely different streams Rick has paddled on. since he began this adventure in the late 1970s It does not count the multiple trips on scores of rivers that. would no doubt take Rick s count into the thousands. I have to thank Rick for introducing me to gueriilla paddling a term coined by our good friend and Rockford. based river rat Tom Lindblade whereby you seek out the obscure the small and the unknown stream you are. unintimidated by the lack of paddler knowledge of that stream and you are not bothered in the least by a few. pullovers or deadfall maneuvering In fact the latter and the skill they demand are part of why you go on. small obscure streams, With this compendium Rick has made the obscure more tantalizing the seemingly inaccessible more. approachable and the fascinating but complicated geology of Wisconsin more understandable It is an. impressive accomplishment that I hope will bring more people to more rivers thereby bringing more love and. more protection for these watery veins that shape and define Wisconsin.

This stream begins high in the Kettle Moraine south of Hartford and Pike Lake State Park It flows. southwestward and joins the Rock River in northeastern Jefferson County near the city of Oconomowoc. Originally this was a land of oak savanna and scattered prairies I experienced a section dominated by. bottomland trees like silver maples before I passed through a marsh and then across a lake The water quality. is reasonably good, Human History and Influence, The dam and millpond at Monterey figured prominently into my trip Several new large homes had recently. been built above the river bottoms and were clearly visible Domiciles of various sizes lined the shores of the. Navigability and Difficulty, Too many fallen silver maple trees for most. Trip Ideas My experience, On the morning of April 10 2007 I was pondering if and where I might explore this small stream My first idea. was to explore it from the millpond and paddle upstream but I chose the more challenging idea of putting in. on County P upstream of the pond As I feared I encountered countless fallen trees in the bottomland but. perversely enjoyed working my way slowly towards the millpond I was out of the canoe pulling over and. around obstructions nearly as much as I was in the boat Several times I cheated by taking shortcuts between. river bends About one hour after putting in I emerged from the trees into a treeless marsh To my surprise I. noticed an attractive stand of tamarack trees on river left and also noted several sandhill cranes The current. fizzled out in another half hour and I proceeded to paddle across the millpond to my awaiting bicycle near the. dam The bike ride back to my car was easy and pleasant. Further Ideas, Likely few have been crazy enough to explore the Ashippun though I did see evidence of old attempts at. chainsaw clearing of the corridor A riverside resident I talked to told me he had never seen a paddler go by. Local paddlers would be well advised to follow my first idea of skipping any one way river trips and just taking. a brief voyage upstream from the top of the millpond as far as they choose to go and then turning around. Conclusion, Too small and deadfall choked for most Consider paddling upstream from the millpond and turning around.
Bark River, Washington Waukesha and Jefferson counties. Natural Features, The Bark River begins in the hills and forests of the Kettle Moraine Initially it flows through several lakes near. Oconomowoc and over glacial deposits Here the river bottom is mostly sandy or gravelly Further downstream. the Bark passes through a former glacial lake bottom which now features marshy sections Vegetation types. along the Bark vary from wetland to bottomland to sections of upland oaks and other deciduous trees The.
