Presque Isle Flowage [Wildlife Viewing Area] - U.S. Forest Service Phone: (906) 667-0261.  From Marenisco, drive south on M-64 about 2.5 miles  to the site entrance on the right (west) side of the road. Located in the bottomlands of the Presque  Isle River, this site is an excellent example of the  high productivity of wetland habitats. The flowage is  actually a large impoundment. Stretching nearly 6 miles  and ranging from one half to three quarters of a mile  wide, this man-mad lake features some 15 miles of shoreline  with many unique and picturesque inlets and bays. All  this shoreline provides abundant shallow habitat for  many plants and animals. Wildlife viewing at this site  is probably best done from a canoe or small boat, although  limited opportunities do exist from the shore as well.  The dam washed out in the summer of 2002 due to heavy  rains. It was rebuilt in the fall of 2003. Habitat conditions  and wildlife use are expected to return to the original  conditions following restoration of water levels and  plant growth. Eagles have nested here in the past  but abandoned the nest when the dam washed out in 2002.  When re-flooded, the productivity of this aquatic system  is expected to attract eagles and ospreys back to nest.  This site also offers good viewing of waterfowl and  wading birds like great blue herons and shorebirds from  May through October. A silent, stealthy canoeist may  even see the secretive American bitterns and black terns  that call this site home. The best months to see these  birds are June through August.

Yondota Falls, Presque Isle River, 3 miles north or Marenisco.  Access: Improved trail.  Walking Time:  15-45 minutes.  Vertical Drop:  5 feet and under.
