Norwalk, Connecticut, US
|Usual Difficulty||II(IV) (for normal flows)|
Lat/longitude coords are approximate.
River levels are usually low and unrunnable, so it takes a good amount of rain to make this a worthwhile paddle. The only available gauge can be found using this link.
Recommended minimum flow is 200 cfs which makes class II-III, and will still result in some bottom scraping.
Max recommended flow is somewhere around 600-700 cfs. Tight and technical in some sections. Stone bridge can begin to get pretty nasty.
Watch for a series of three strainers immediately exiting large flatwater pond section that parallels Rt 7 Connector. River narrows and acclerates some. At about 200-300 cfs the first two can be paddled under on river right if you're saavy. Third can also be ducked. At flood stage one can paddle through what would normally be the woods on river left and avoid these entirely.
