Summer is finally here on the Wisconsin River and many Wisconsinites got out this past week-end on the water for the first time this year. We (Wisconsinites) had a winter that we would rather forget with brutal temperatures, snow, and a howlingwind. I am not sure how many days were below zero, but it was more than I can ever remember in the last few decades. Spring was late in coming with many lakes in the northern part of the state still frozen over for the opening week-end of fishing the beginning of May. There has been high water on the Wisconsin River for much of the spring and into summer. This has prevented people from canoeing, boating, tubing, fishing, and camping on this magni-ficent body of water.

For most of the spring and early summer, the water flow on the river was too high coming out of the Prairie du Sac Dam. When the water flow is more than 10,000 c.f.s. (cubic feet per second), there are no islands and sand bars to camp on or pull over and rest while paddling down the river. I felt sorry for the canoe rental businesses that depend on making a living in just a few months of the year. Normally, the parking lot at Black Hawk River Runs on Highway Y outside of Sauk City is full of vehicles and always jammed on weekends. This has not been the case most of this year. Some weekends, there have been only a handful of cars and SUV's. But this past weekend, it was like a normal summer with the lot packed and even people parking along the highway. Groups of people from out of town, out of state, and anywhere in the bordering states were in the Sauk City area enjoying the Wisconsin River and all the wonders of nature that this area has to offer for all to enjoy.
