The Pine River is a hidden gem, unheralded, largely unappreciated. Yet it is a joy to paddle- gentle, with clear water, a sandy bottom and wooded banks. This upper stretch is small and intimate. The gradient upstream from Pine River Dam is less than the 5.2 fpm average. The gradient between the Pine River Dam and Upper Whitefish Lake is greater, about 7 feet per mile. Low dams at Pine Mountain, Bowen, and Hattie lakes, and at the town of Pine River. Watch out for low clearance at the County Route 43 bridge 2 miles above Norway Lake, and Hopper's Bridge near the Cass- Crow Wing county line.
