Getting on the River
The Best Dam Fishing Float (608.484.1656) is one way to get on the river without a boat. Raise the red flag at the boat ramp below Lock and Dam 7, and they’ll send a small boat to pick you up, so you can spend the day fishing from their completely rebuilt platform on the river; bring a fishing license.
