River Description

Another 'unknown' reach . . . marked rapids on the topo maps, on a stretch of river we have no other info regarding. Drainage area is sufficient for a fair number of days per year of runnable flows. Rapids appear to be generally low-grade (probably class II at good flows).

Note: The listed put-in and take-out appear to give the best 'bang for the buck' (most apparent rapids with least flatwater). Additional rapids may exist beyond those marked on topos. A longer trip may be chosen to continue to additional rapids, which have been marked on the map and listed in the 'Rapids' tab.

Have you seen this stretch or boated it? Please help out your fellow boaters with a comment or report with more details!

This may be a better put-in if the upper one is not accessible and/or if the 'apparent' rapids between it and here are not worth the bother.

Penobscot River Dams to be Removed!

Kevin Colburn

Atlantic Salmon and other imperiled fish species will soon have hundreds of additional miles of habitat. A recent decision between a power company, NGO's, tribes, and government agencies calls for the removal of two dams on Maine's Penobscot River and the bypassing of a third. American Whitewater applauds this huge win for rivers and is recruiting volunteers to assist with our work on the project. There is a public meeting December 2nd.
