Trout Fishing in the Coulees
Kayaking the Mississippi Backwaters
Onalaska's Lumbering History
The Mississippi River and 7,700-acre Lake Onalaska, pool 7 of the Mississippi River, provide outstanding fishing, boating and paddling. Onalaska is situated where the Black River meets the Mississippi. Canoe and kayak the winding river channels and expansive backwaters.
Trout creeks abound in the coulee region. Look at our fishing page for a fantastic map put together by the Wisconsin DNR which shows where all our trout streams are located. Photo by: Anthony Larson
Onalaska has a wealth of paddling opportunities from the 7,700 Lake Onalaska, to the winding ways of the Mississippi backwaters, to the mighty Mississip itself. Photo Credit: Sue Schultz
