The Sauk resumes its riverine nature, meandering calmly toward St. Cloud, winding through woods and some pasture. There are no real rapids, but there may be fast water and some maneuvering around snags when the water is high. Granite outcrops are occasionally visible along the river. One drawback in late summer is the thick weed growth in the slower stretches of the river. Fishing can be good in this section, especially for channel cats and, in spring, walleye.
