A rough gem that promises solitude in a wild northwoods setting. Remote and wild, the Net River is one of those under-publicized Upper Peninsula streams that is ideal for paddlers looking to disappear for a springtime afternoon or weekend. Unlike the nearby Paint River (of which the Net is a tributary), the Net is both highly seasonal and difficult to access. Summertime water levels are generally too low to support paddling, and put-in spots are limited to a handful of secluded sites. These factors have kept the Net far beneath the radar of most canoeists and anglers over the years. But if you’re willing to brave the stream’s rugged access roads and are capable of grappling with the obstacles inevitably conjured up by a true wilderness river, the Net is an engaging early-season alternative.
