The Brule is popular for canoeing, spanning about 45 miles (72 km) with several stop/start points somewhat evenly spread out. The Brule's flow is much more reliable than many other surrounding rivers, due to its "untouched" quality. There is only one dam on the river that affects the water level, but that is located on Brule Island near the end of the Brule just below the Paint River.
Much of the land on both sides of the river is publicly owned with several good campsites available. Fishing is exceptional, with brook and brown trout in the upper areas and tributaries. Smallmouth bass and northern pike can be found in abundance in the lower sections.
This river has been visited by four U.S. presidents and is spectacular.
