Sturgeon River (ONF)

wsrlogo11Sturgeon_River0302The Sturgeon River canoe trail starts 3 miles west of Forest Highway 13 at County Road 440 near the Alger-Delta County line. This is approximately 35 miles east of Rapid River, and 44 miles west of Manistique. The trail is 41 miles in length and has six access points. Most lands along the Sturgeon River are National Forest Lands, but private properties exist. If you intend to camp, check your map to be sure you do not trespass on private properties. There are primitive camping areas and one developed campground. Waterfowl and deer sightings are common. Brown trout fishing is best north of US 2. Steelhead, brook trout, and salmon also frequent the river.

The Sturgeon River is a relatively slow moving river with many meanders. Fallen tress and heavy brush occasionally block the river and require portaging. Two areas of rapids and rock riffles add excitement to the trip.

Early summer and late fall are the best times to canoe the Sturgeon River. Two rapids challenge canoers; elusive brown trout, steelhead and salmon challenge anglers.

This river flows through a narrow, dissected, gorge-like valley with an average depth of 200-300 feet, and through the Sturgeon River Gorge Wilderness.

Designated Reach: March 3, 1992. From the north line of Section 26, T43N, R19W, to Lake Michigan.

Classification/Mileage: Scenic -- 21.7 miles; Recreational -- 22.2 miles; Total -- 43.9 miles.
