Rescue teams searched a portion of the Black River Monday evening after a man disappeared following an apparent canoe accident.
Darkness forced officials to suspend the search after about two hours.
The man and the woman were not wearing life vests.
"They were holding on 'til halfway down screaming 'Help.' Then we took and just did what we had to do to try and get them in. They didn't have no life jackets on...You've got to respect the water. If you're gonna go out in this, don't go out in a canoe definitely when they have the dams open all the way down to Dexter," said Randy Rasmussen, a witness.
