The Wolf River is located in the eastern part of Langlade County. The Wolf River goes from calm waters in the northern section to rapids towards the eastern part of Langlade County. Sections of the Wolf River is known for its whitewater rafting. Rafting conditions depend on water levels. Spring run-off can be one of the most challending obstacles to paddle. You are sure to get your adrenaline rush paddling in Langlade County!

Eastern Langlade County is also home to one of the finest trout streams in the Midwest. The Wolf River offers excellent dry-fly fishing, especially in May and June, with good catches into autumn. The famed trout waters occur in a 40-mile section between Highway T, south to Highway M, and are divided into 10 public access points. This section of the river has a steep gradient creating numerous complex rapids and should only be navigated by experienced anglers. From Post Lake Dam to Highway T, the river is slow moving and is easy to float with a canoe. Anglers will find good populations of northern pike, walleye, bass and musky.
