Minong Flowage is a 1564 acre flowage formed in 1937 by a dam on the Totogatic River. The flowage has a lot of area to paddle and is fairly easy to navigate. There aren’t any strong currents which makes it easy to paddle in any direction. The shorelines are lined with trees and there are multiple islands that can be explored or stopped at for a break. The islands are very popular stops with boaters.

The Minong Flowage is a great trip for kayakers that would like a lot of area to paddle but want to start and finish a trip from the same launch point. The flowage has enough area to choose a short or long trip and makes it easy to paddle any direction.
