I was now clean of the Whitewater State Park mud and back on the road heading towards Winona, Minnesota. This historic town is located along the banks of the Mississippi River and almost every canoe paddler in the world knows the canoes that have made this small town famous: Wenonah Canoes. I was excited to find what this town held for a canoe paddler like myself.
I am only on day three of my Great Mississippi River Road trip to St Louis. I made a planned detour off the Great River Road to the west, hopefully to end my fishing season with a trout at Whitewater State Park. I started of my fishing season this year with a catch of my first every rainbow trout. Landing one at the end of the season would just be a perfect way to end my season.
