What is a Flowage?

Typical Western USA dam & reservoir

Over the years, I’ve discovered that when I speak of a flowage, many folks from outside the Upper Midwest have no idea what I’m talking about. This is especially true for people who live west of the Mississippi River. We can resolve this confusion very simply by first comparing a flowage to a more common term – a reservoir.

Reservoir is the term used to describe a man-made impoundment of water created by damming a river, thus causing a large lake or reservoir to back up behind the dam. The river that was dammed continues to flow at a moderated rate, through and below the dam. The reservoir exists above the dam. Reservoirs are common in the Western and Plain states. They are normally used in mountainous or flat, arid land to control flooding. The bottom content of reservoirs are normally sand, gravel, silt or rock.

A flowage is very similar to a reservoir. A flowage is also man-made and is formed by damming a river, thus causing a water impoundment to back up behind the dam. Several factors make flowages different from reservoirs. Flowages are common in the northern Midwest where woodlands and low terrain have been intentionally flooded, either to control flooding, to generate hydro-power, or to form a recreational area in a remote location, or all of the above. Once flooding is complete, the bottom of flowages often consists of brush, timber, natural lake basins, natural creek, stream, or river beds, rock, sand, or mud (mostly in the lake basins).

Follow the link below to see a detailed map of he Turtle Flambeau Flowage. Note the original lake basins, which are shaded in dark blue. Note the river and channels which connect the lake basins. These were the features of the land before this area was flooded. These features remain today, though they are under water.

Wisconsin has many flowages and few, if any, reservoirs. All of the flowages are popular recreational areas. The larger flowages are the famous Turtle-Flambeau Flowage in Iron County, which is a damming of the Flambeau River. The Rainbow Flowage in Oneida County is a damming of the Wisconsin River. The Willow Flowage in Oneida County is a damming of the Tomahawk River. The Chippewa Flowage in Sawyer County is a damming of the Chippewa River. The Gile Flowage in Iron County is a damming of the Montreal River. There are numerous smaller flowages throughout the northern part of the state.

The most popular recreation on the large flowages is fishing; whether that be on open water or through the ice in winter. My family confines our fishing to flowages. Why? Because flowages offer a wider variety and abundance of fish-holding structure versus lakes.

Think of a lake as a soup bowl. The shoreline gradually drops off and the water level becomes deeper as you move towards the center of the lake. Fish-holding structure may consist of shoreline weeds, occasional rock piles on the bottom, or a point, if there is an island in the lake. The water in Northwood’s lakes are generally gin-clear, allowing for light penetration to depths as much as 20 feet. This could allow for deeper weed bed growth if bottom content is suitable for plants. When compared to the huge flowages, lakes are relatively small with limited structure for holding fish. So they offer less opportunity for finding fish. Additionally, the clarity of the water is a problem.

On the other hand, large flowages are extremely diverse for bottom content. The natural lake basins, streams, creeks, and rivers that were flooded are all under water but easily located with a fish-finder’s LCD display. Flowages are dotted with hundreds of islands. Brush, stumps, and logs are everywhere with most being under water. The Turtle-Flambeau Flowage holds an abundance of rock with some underwater rocks being as big as a small auto.

Another characteristic of a flowage, versus a reservoir, is that the water is “stained”. The water in most reservoirs is clear, blue, or slightly green. The water in flowages is stained due to tannic acid. Tannic acid comes from decaying timber and flowages usually contain an abundance of decaying stumps and timber. Tannic acid is harmless, odorless, and clean. I’ve had guests say that the water is dirty; which it isn’t. Tannic acid in a body of water improves fishing because it decreases light penetration. Fish do not care for sun or light.

Hopefully, you now understand the difference between a flowage and a reservoir. A flowage is flooded low land or timber land. A reservoir is flooded high land or mountainous area. Note the photos of each that are contained within this post.

On my blog calendar, February is flowage month. In March, posts will focus on the topic of Places of Interest in the Northwoods. But before we leave the subject of flowages, you will soon find:

  1. How the Turtle Flambeau Flowage was created in 1926.
  2. Why the Turtle Flambeau Flowage has the reputation for being the most hazardous flowage to navigate in Wisconsin.
  3. Other big flowages in the Northwoods that are popular recreation spots.

    Somebody essentially assisted to make such significant posts I would state.
    This is the first time I frequented your web page and thus far,
    I amazed with the research you did to create this
    incredible article. Great task!

  2. Zahnarzt Ludwigsburg April 9, 2015 at 11:47 pm #

    I absolutely love your website.. Pleasant colors & theme. Did you make this web site yourself? Please reply back as I’m trying to create my very own site and want to know where you got this from or what the theme is called. Kudos!

    • Scott Alan Reed April 13, 2015 at 6:53 pm #

      Take a look at the FAQ page. The first couple of questions explain where the site design and theme came from. There’s also an article that explains the whole history of this website. I think it’s titled something like “Where did this theme and colors come from?”. Look under “Recent Blogs.”

  7. Sramek April 6, 2015 at 2:02 pm #

    May I simply say what a comfort to discover somebody that genuinely understands what they’re talking about on the web. You definitely know how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More people must read this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised you’re not more popular since you most certainly possess the gift.

    • Scott Alan Reed April 13, 2015 at 7:30 pm #

      It’s a Google problem. Google would prefer that I write on just one theme. But that’s boring. Also, I need to post more often and use more video. I’m working on it.

  8. Smaniotto February 19, 2015 at 3:14 am #

    Spot on with this write-up, I truly believe that this amazing site needs a great deal more attention. I’ll probably be returning to read more, thanks for the info!

    Sweet blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News.
    Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!
    Thanks

    • Scott Alan Reed April 15, 2015 at 1:27 pm #

      Sorry Bernie, I have no idea how to get on Yahoo News. In fact, I’m surprised you found this site there since I purposely do not write on the news.

  11. anonymous January 9, 2015 at 7:49 pm #

    Way cool! Some extremely valid points! I appreciate you penning this article plus the rest of the website is very good.

  12. anonymous January 6, 2015 at 3:44 am #

    Oh my goodness! Amazing article dude! Thank you, However I am encountering difficulties with your RSS. I don’t understand the reason why I can’t subscribe to it. Is there anyone else getting similar RSS problems? Anyone who knows the answer will you kindly respond? Thanx!!

    • Scott Alan Reed April 15, 2015 at 2:14 pm #

      RSS issues are often the fault of the browser that you are using. For example, Google Chrome does not support RSS, I’m told.

  13. Maritza Springer December 31, 2014 at 7:28 am #

    Currently it looks like BlogEngine is the
    top blogging platform out there right now. (from
    what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

    • Scott Alan Reed December 31, 2014 at 10:48 am #

      I disagree. WordPress still holds the largest market share for blogging platforms on the Internet and that is what I use.

  14. anonymous December 31, 2014 at 4:55 am #

    Spot on with this write-up, I truly think this website needs far more attention. I’ll probably be back again to read through more, thanks for the advice!

    Hmm it seemms like your site ate my first comment (it was super
    long) so I guess I’ll just sum up what I had
    written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any recommendations for beginner blog writers?

    I’d really appreciate it.

    • Scott Alan Reed December 31, 2014 at 11:31 am #

      Sure. Avoid blogging on the subjects of celebrity gossip, re-hashed news, on-line marketing, and sales pitches. Post once a day. Respond to comments when visitors ask questions. And most importantly, write great content that your readers will love. Use relevant photos and videos to highlight points in your articles. You’ll be a big hit.

    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes are wasted just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any ideas or tips? Thank you!

    • Scott Alan Reed October 24, 2014 at 2:09 pm #

      Yes! It just so happens that I have a post on my desk that will be published this weekend that deals with “writer’s block”. Look for it. The best way to do that is to click on the category (sidebar on the right) “Recent Posts”. The newest post will be at the top. But not until this weekend.

      • Scott Alan Reed July 29, 2014 at 1:26 pm #

        Then don’t try and figure out how to begin. That’s called “writers block”. When I get an idea for a great article, I just slam my thoughts out on a blank document in MS Word. Sometimes that’s all I do, and I come back to it later. Most of the time I just get my thoughts on paper in no particular order and organize those thoughts later. That’s the best approach. You have to get everything out of your head quickly before you forget or get frustrated. Just do that and THEN worry later about an appropriate beginning to your article. Just start any way you choose instead of defeating your writing effort before you even begin.

        Cheers! Scott Alan Reed

    I believe everything published was actually very logical. However, think on this, suppose you added a little information? I am not saying your information isn’t good, however what if you added a headline that makes people want more? I mean What is a Flowage? | This IS the Northwoods is a little plain. You ought to look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create article titles to grab people interested. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab people interested about what you’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it could bring your blog a little livelier.

    How is it that just anybody can publish a blog and get as popular as this? Its not like youve said anything extremely impressive more like youve painted a quite picture about an issue that you know nothing about! I dont want to sound mean, here. But do you really think that you can get away with adding some quite pictures and not really say anything?

    Found your blog when googling “f;owage”. Though I was raised in Minnesota, I was never quite sure what a flowage was. (I don’t think the word “flowage” is used in Minnesota, unless one is speaking of Wisconsin.) You answered it. Thank you.

    Looking forward to moving back someday, perhaps near Pine City, MN (near Grantsburg).
