The Snake loses speed and gradient, but still runs through several easy rapids. The river varies between occasional rapids, slow meanders, upland forest, and shady river bottom. There are enough rapids and shallows to make this stretch a miserable hike in low water. This is no wilderness—the area was thoroughly logged for its white pine during the late 1800s—but the second-growth forest gives the illusion of wild country. Keep an eye out for kingfishers, great blue herons, various forest songbirds, and mammals such as mink, deer, and even black bears and river otters. Like the previous section, this stretch of the Snake provides good fishing for northern pike, walleye, and smallmouth bass. Best luck usually comes where the river flows over a hard rock bottom, especially near riffles.
