Middle Raccoon River
..was first documented on the 1814 Lewis and Clark map. It continuously makes lists as one of the best navigable rivers in Iowa for beginner and intermediate paddlers. After the spring sediment clears, the water is clear enough to see riverbed and the smallmouth that fill that deeper pockets. The fishing is great and paddling is superb!
