The Cedar River flows from just north of Austin, MN all the way down to southeast Iowa, where it joins the Iowa River and becomes a major tributary into the Mississippi. Enjoy catching small mouth bass while paddling down a moderately flowing beautifully wooded corridor. There are no major rapids. Tell me more about this river's landscape, wildlife, and history.
