I've floated the lower Wisconsin many times in a canoe, but going out in a smaller fishing boat this weekend--15 footer with a 25hp Merc Bigfoot. Concerned about running aground sandbars or getting into similar issues outside the main channel. Water seems to be at normal or low levels/flow for late summer. I assume the main channel runs along the Northern/Western shore for most of the way. Is this correct? Or any other tips to mostly follow the main channel? Thanks in advance!

You can "maybe" pull it off on a smaller/lighter boat with till/trim way up, but go slow and be careful. If you have a depth finder, the better. Bring oars too.
