Both the West and South branches offer relatively slow moving water. Put in off of Forest Road 8100 at the Teal canoe landing on the West Branch north of the Henry Lake campground, or on the South Branch south of Hawk Lake mile west of M-64 at the Mallard canoe landing on Forest Road 8100. The branches join south of Marenisco. The trip from there has a long portage at Yondota Falls. Bring your rod for trout and northern pike. Canoeing north of M-28 is not recommended.
