The St. Croix Marshland
The Marshland area of the St Croix between Riverside Landing and Highway 70 is a beautiful stretch of river. In this area, the river changes fairly dramatically from its origins near Gordon Wisconsin. The river gets substantially wider and for the most part, the banks are lower. This stretch of river is one of the best small mouth bass fisheries around and people come from all over the world to try their hand at catching these beautiful fish. There are a number of points of interest in this stretch as well. One of two areas where traffic crosses the river is the Gandy Dancer trail in Danbury on which ATV's can get a glimpse of the river. The other area where traffic crosses the river is Hwy 70 which is near the bottom of the Marshland district.
