May 25, 2018 -  Come see full flow at Breakwater Falls and exposed rapids on Pine River Flowage - From June 1st through the fall of this year, the Pine River (Florence, WI) will offer a rare opportunity for Wisconsin whitewater. During the dam maintenance drawdown, no water will be diverted around Breakwater Falls and gorge-rapids below the Pine Dam. The 12-foot lowering of water level, (started 5/21) will also expose additional rapids and both twin falls just upriver from the Pine River Flowage.

In the 2.4 miles of the river from LaSalle Falls through Breakwater Gorge, the Pine River drops a Midwestern-impressive 146 feet (gradient of 61 fpm), over 6 waterfalls and 5 rapids. Average summer flow (June thru October) for this section of the Pine is 342cfs. During normal hydroelectric operation all water but 27cfs is diverted around Breakwater Falls and Gorge. During this year’s drawdown there will be no diversion for electrical generation. The drops at LaSalle and Breakwater will have the same flow rates. Having both these spectacular falls runnable at the same time with the same flow has not been available since the last drawdown in 1993.
