St. Louis River-Scanlon to Thomson Reservoir Professional Review and Guide
"Though short, this section provides a wild and beautiful ride down distinctive rapids and falls. About 0.5 mile into the run, the river runs through a short, wavy drop called Warm-up Rapids (river mile 33.0). Nothing to it, you think—an easy Class I with no real obstacles. But because of its size, the river is pushier and its waves are bigger than they at first appear. Waves up to 2 feet at higher levels will bounce you around and give you a chance for a bit of surfing to warm up.
Few paddlers will pay much attention to the fishing; their attention will be riveted to the whitewater instead. However, the river and Thomson Reservoir harbor small-mouth bass, northern pike, walleye, and channel catfish."
