River Description

A dam has been replace with rock-arch rapids. Downstream, a couple of ledges may provide some surfing opportunities (at certain flows). The Luce Line State Trail runs along river-left, providing a handy carry-up for this short stretch.

For those looking for a longer run, it does appear there may be some additional shoals downstream. Check just upstream and downstream of 2nd Avenue SE, at Adams Street SE, at 160th Street, and (not convenient to check other than by running the stretch) a ways upstream of Front Street / Hwy.22 (which would be a run of ~7.9 miles).

Directions Description

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.
