In the Wild with Greg Wagner


DON’T OVERLOOK THE CEDAR RIVER by Greg Wagner

One river that many folks seem to overlook when planning summer float and fishing trips is the tranquil, beautiful Cedar River in east-central Nebraska.  

  

The Cedar River near Fullerton is quite scenic!  

Located near the Cedar River in Nance County is the site of the historic Moses Merrill Baptist Camp which is now Broken Arrow Wilderness Camp.

 Tanking is popular on the Cedar. One of my favorite stretches to float on the river is from about Belgrade to Fullerton.

 Here’s a link with all kinds of information on floating the Cedar River: http://outdoornebraska.ne.gov/Boating/guides/canoetrails/pdf/CedarRiver.pdf  

Two outfitters are available. Go to this website for one outfitter: www.brokenarrowwilderness.com or e-mail this address for the other one: riverrunners@gpcom.net  

Oh, and did I mention that the Cedar River is an excellent catfishing resource? You darn right it is!  

The Cedar River is full of plump, skillet-sized channel catfish.

Nebraska has some wonderful rivers to float and fish, and the Cedar is defintely one of them! Don’t overlook it! See you out there, or on there! Perhaps a fall trip is in order for you and your group?
