He is correct, there isn't to much to worry about till it gets shallow. When you go out from the launch swing it wide towards the opposite side because when it starts to narrow down, just a little upstream from were the point ends, there is a rock pile just under the surface. Most of the time there is a jub tied there to warn you. Other than that it is pretty safe, but remember that the river goes a long ways before the next dam so there can sometimes be floating logs or branches. ( Especially after a storm)

You won't have a problem, until you run out of water.

I am planning on taking my family to big falls flowage this weekend. We were gonna go upstream a ways. I was wondering if there are a lot of navigation hazards or if a 16ft boat have much problems. Any info is greatly appreciated thank you

You can get to with in about 100 yards of the dam without to much trouble if you stay in the channel. There are rock croppings coming out of the water on the way up there, but the water is fairly deep a little ways away from them. It is very very shallow the last 100 yards. You can get right to the base of the dam put I wouldn't suggest it, because there is only a narrow spot to get through without hitting rocks below the surface and the current going back down makes it very difficult to steer in time to avoid. Unlike most dams the water in front of the spill ways is not deep at all. To the previous poster, the dairland is a nice body of water. It does get somewhat busy especially on holiday weekends because of the campground. It is a fairly long body of water so there is usually plenty of spots to go and not be bothered by pleasure boaters. During the week there is very little traffic. Big Falls flowage which is right upstream of the dairyland is almost always free of pleasure boats. I think you would find the county as a whole to be one of the least touristy areas around . There is abundant public land for hunting.

Would anyone tell me how safe (I put a certain amount of value on my lower unit) the ride is from Josie Creek up to the dam?

Not totally sure what you are looking for. This water has excellent musky and smallmouth fishing. Walleyes are on the small size but there are some bigger fish if you can find them. Decent crappie fishing. The water is coffee stained and it can get very busy on the weekends.

Looking for some honest answers. I'm looking for a place to retire and spend most of my time fishing. Something like Minocqua back in the 70's before the tourists invaded and destroyed the fishing. So very decent fishing, very minimal amount of tourists, quiet. I happened across some places on the water (Dairyland Flowage) in Tony. Am I looking in the right place, or is there somewhere else in WI I should be looking? Thanks in advance.
