Just below the waterfall that has the footbridge high above it. Accessed by the tennis courts off of 29/35. Caught two browns one was 12" and two brookies less than 10". Caught them on beadhead prince nymphs, beadhead pheasant tails, and pink squirrels. As you can see, this section of the Kinni is one of the most picturesque of any trout stream in Wisconsin. With the abundance of brownies and brookies and the beauty of the spot, it is amazing that we don't see very many other anglers when we visit.
