The Wolf River country — long known as Wisconsin’s “Troutland” for the spirited fish in these clean Northern waters — is one of the state’s richest resources. The Wolf River is the heart of the area. It flows quietly into Troutland in the community of Lily. Along the quiet stretches — interspersed among the rapids — trout fishermen find the excitement and challenge of matching wits with the brookies, browns, and rainbows that swell in the Wolf River and its tributaries.
Whitewater rafting and canoeing are popular sports that take advantage of the river’s boisterous nature. People who raft or paddle our famous Wolf River are rewarded with outstanding shoreline scenery, abundant wildlife and excellent water quality. The rapids become rowdier and more numerous the farther downstream you go, making a rafting ride a thrilling adventure. In the 28 miles it flows through our area, the Wolf River drops a breathtaking 430 feet in elevation.
