Drove along the river from Prairie Du Chien,

I noticed above the Lynnville lock and dam the river is extremely wide and there is no islands, chutes or backwaters.

In this large expanse of river, how much of it is boatable, how much is fishable?

Is there channels other than the main channel, marked by bouyes ?

I guess to those that fish and boat it, could you give me a quick run down of general boating and fishing of this area.

I fish pool 11, completely different water and features.

I apologize if this sounds ignorant, but I never have driven this in the summer to see the boaters and fishing of this area.
