Cloquet River-Island Lake Dam to St. Louis River Professional Review and Guide
"The Cloquet races through a series of pools and easy rapids to its confluence with the St. Louis. The lower Cloquet provides good fishing for smallmouth bass, brown trout, and other species. No particular hazards, though rapids get markedly more difficult near the river's mouth.
This stretch of the Cloquet varies between wild and bucolic. A riverside forest of pine, fir, spruce, aspen, and birch occasionally is broken by farmland and a few homes and cabins. Several bridges cross this stretch, but there are no large towns or cities."
