The Wild Branch is a good II+ run. You need to watch it closely before and during a rain to catch it. It is a small watershed and drains very quickly. Be VERY careful of strainers there are many and definately boat it with someone else. It is a wild ride like the name describes. A fun good run if you catch it when it is running.

Bellows Falls (VT) Flow Study Reveals Hidden Whitewater

6/2/2015
Robert Nasdor

A hardy group of northeast boaters climbed into the natural river channel below a hydropower dam to participate in a flow study designed to assess whether whitewater flows should be restored to this dewatered river reach on the Connecticut River. While significant obstacles remain, this site has the potential for providing instruction, playboating, and a big water feature that that could be run throughout much of the year and provide a much needed boost to the local economy.
