River Description

A short section (a mile or less) of steep gradient exists as this drops its final way to Lake Superior. While there may be good gradient upstream of the listed put-in, it is generally too wooded up to be worth the bother. This is one of the last runnable watersheds before the Grand Portage Indian Reservation (where you may be trespassing if found setting shuttle and running the rivers).

It ***may*** be possible to put in up this far to get a little warm-up before the final steeper gradient (and get more nearly a full mile of river to run), but it may not be worth it.

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.
