wind advise for Stilwater please

Hi, I would like to paddle the length of the reservoir in a small canoe and am concerned about wind and waves and being able to get back to the launch.. Is one shore better protected?
Thanks, Turtle

Depending on the exact wind direction, I would usually stick to the north shore. There are more inlets to duck into, but there are also stump fields and shoals to watch for. The southern route takes you across wide open water expanse or may otherwise place you in a long fetch if wind is coming in from the west. Not so good in the wind.
