On this section, riffles become less common, while long stretches of deep and slow water become more prevalent. Travel time could vary greatly depending on wind conditions and how willing the voyager is to paddle. Floating along is less practical as one nears Frankenmuth, due to the slowed current upstream from Frankenmuth. Fishing boats, pontoons and commercial tour boats are common sightings along this relatively wide and still beautiful stretch of river.
