Swing bridge from below.
Earlier this year there was discussion around removing the dam in River Falls.
A spring bubbling up feeding the Kinni.
We discovered this feeder creek with a small water fall just down from the park. I'll bring a 2 weight next time I'm here.
When I moved to the Midwest I lived in River Falls WI for a short time. It was a perfect place for a fly fisherman to get acclimated to the driftless area. With any luck I'll retire there watching $4 movies at the local theater, evaluating the Chiefs during spring training and sipping coffee at the South Fork Diner every morning before hitting the stream. The Kinnickinnic runs through town which boasts thousands of fish per mile. River Falls is a short drive from several other quality streams; the Rush, Willow and Trimbelle. It's also home to two top notch fly shops/guide services in Lunds Fly Shop and Kinni Creek Lodge and Outfitters. We took a trip there Sunday to walk through Glen Park and check out the water. Here are some photos from the day.
Interesting history...who knew there was once a zoo in River Falls.
The swing bridge was originally built in 1925 for $4,800
