This is a popular area. It has a long history of being a great trout fishery. Urban sprawl has taken a toll on this fishery, but it still has great trout fishing available.
The Pike river is one of the Wild and scenic rivers in Wisconsin. It has ample Road side parking within a short hike to the river. This is the most common means of access. Minimally maintained, signed pull-offs and small parking areas are also available on State lands along the course of the river. Three developed parking lots exist to facilitate canoe/ kayak access for the most popular run; they are found at the US Hwy 141 bridge, County Hwy K bridge, and the Pike River Road/Barker Road bridge.
