Click the links below to check the water levels and for more information on each segment of the Wolf River in Langlade County Wisconsin.
Section 2- is from Hollister to the Highway 64 bridge at Langlade. This section is often paddled by beginners as the river offers a variety of Class I and II rapids with good surfing waves and countless currents.
Section 3 - is considered south of the Highway 64 bridge. The river has stretches of several Class II+ (III) rapids and some long flatwater stretches. With most of the riverbank under state ownership (until the end of the run), you get the feeling of paddling in a wilderness setting.
Section 4 - is the most challenging segment on the Wolf River. The character of the river changes from (generally) longer boulder-garden style rapids (upstream of the reservation and the upper/prior stretch in the reservation) to shorter but steeper drops in this section. In all cases, fairly long flatwater pools separate the main rapids.
