"An Accidental Jewel: Wisconsin's Turtle-Flambeau Flowage" by Michael Hittle
In 1926, the Chippewa and Flambeau Improvement Company closed the gates on a newly finished dam at the confluence of the Turtle and Flambeau rivers in Iron County. The act created a storage reservoir of over 13,000 acres known as the Turtle-Flambeau Flowage. This book tells the story of the creation of the flowage, the evolution of its waters, the emergence of human presence in the area and its rich history as a hotspot for fishing and vacationing. Makes a great gift for any angler or Wisconsinite!
