Chippewa River

Photo-Chippewa RiverAThe Chippewa River in Michigan runs approximately 80 miles through the  central Lower Peninsula. The main branch of the river begins in Barryton where the north and west branches are impounded before flowing south  and east into two different lakes in Isabella County, Lake Isabella and  Coldwater Lake. A tributary, Coldwater River, merges approximately 3.5  miles southeast of both lakes. The river flows east into Midland County  where it joins the Tittabawassee River in downtown Midland, Michigan under The Tridge. The river is named  after the Chippewa people (the Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Council is  located in Isabella County). The river flows through Mt. Pleasant and is the focal point of four parks in the city: Riverside Park, Millpond  Park, Nelson Park, and Island Park. In Island Park, the river flows  completely around the park and creates a natural island in the center of the city. Three additional Isabella County parks utilize the river for  recreation: Meridian Park, Deerfield Nature Park, Chipp-A-Waters Park,  and Majeski Landing. The river flows at an approximate speed of 5 mph  and an average volume of 284 ft³/s. It is locally known for bass  fishing. Chubs and redhorses are also abundant. The liveries offer canoe and kayak trips for a few hours to all day.  The river flows through a gravel pit named Hubsher Gravel Pit. The river is a main water source for the city of Mt. Pleasant..
