Historical Willow River Falls Dam : St. Croix County

Near and dear to the Great Lakes Angler, due to their proximity to my childhood home in Hudson, Wisconsin, stand the Willow Falls. Below the falls here on the Willow River is where I caught my first Wisconsin Brook Trout, Rainbow Trout, and Brown Trout. I stumbled upon these photographs of the Willow Falls Dam before it was removed in 1992 as well as this photograph of the falls before the dam went in.

The falls before 1992 while the dam was fully functional.

The falls pre-dam in the 1800's.

The falls and cliffs that surround them are one of Wisconsin's treasures, a place all Great Lakes Anglers should feel right at home.
