There are many spots along the river where one could launch a canoe or a kayak (if you feel up to the challenge of pulling the kayak out of the river every 200 yards or so due to frequent and massive log jams) but these spots are not so friendly to the wading angler due to the fact that the mud-covered slopes are mostly very steep and quickly drop to depths that are unwadable by anyone but Paul Bunyan or the Jolly Green Giant.<br><br>There are some nice overlooks along the trail that follow beside the river, but be prepared to pay your price in blood to the fearless mosquitos that even the strongest of bug repellent won’t deter.<br><br>We thought we would cover five miles of the Fox River starting from the lower campground on Fox River Rd. to the upper campground on that same road. We did, but mostly on foot on the road between the two campgrounds. Almost six miles in 30 lb. boots… yeah, that was not the most fun of days.<br><br>I don't think I agree with the description of this water. This river HAS been largely changed since the days of Hemmingway. Namely with all the logjams. I talked to a local that said the river only had two major log jams at one point, but now there are over 20 since a major storm near the turn of the century. <br><br>If I had it to do over again, I would try the lower reaches where a world record brown was just pulled from the water. We saw very few fish on the upper reaches and only caught a little minnow of a brook trout.<br>In summary, beautiful area, not so friendly for canoeing, kayaking, or wading. (1/19/13)
