Below Hastings, the Mississippi spreads wide into innumerable backwaters, side channels, and riverine lakes. These features provide great opportunities to watch birds and other wildlife. Watch for barges and other large watercraft. Wind can kick up big waves on wide-open lakes and stretches of river. Don't approach too close to either the upstream or downstream sides of the big navigation dams.
