This post was prompted by an informative comment left by Kirk up at Hearthside Grove up in Petoskey, MI.
Getting fished out before this point will be a must!
Kirk was also able to point out a couple local businesses able to assist the intrepid paddler:
- The Bear River Canoe Livery, just outside Petoskey, is probably able to answer the remainder of my questions about the Bear River. They rent paddling gear and offer a variety of canoe and kayak trips down the Bear River.
- The Bahnhof, just inside Petoskey also offers a variety of kayaks for rent or sale. They sound like they have a good range of experience on staff, and are probably able to help with all your paddling needs!
