Log in RR chute removed from last drop. Ran RR side without issue.
Nasty log in RR chute in last drop as of May 5, 2018.
Went up to the Wells yesterday (10/2/11) and it was pretty much unchanged since Irene. One new log resting on top of a rock in Labyrinth, which is entirely out of play, it just looks like it is. Otherwise, it's the same as ever!
There is some wood after the "boof" before the waterfall but it was easily avoided at 500 cfs

Jolyon Rivoir-Pruszinski comments: "It's actually runnable down to 100 cfs and definitely worthwhile, as the bedrock funnels the flow nicely."
This stretch becomes solid IV-V at higher levels (i.e. above 500 or so).
Permits are not required for this reach.
We have no additional detail on this route.

If someone gets hurt on a river, or you read about a whitewater-related injury, please report it to
American Whitewater. Don't worry about multiple submissions from other witnesses, as our safety
editors will turn multiple witness reports into a single unified accident report.
The Vermont Superior Court sided with American Whitewater in a long-running dispute with the state over whitewater boating on the Green River in Morrisville. The Court overturned state restrictions that would have eliminated any meaningful opportunity for boaters to enjoy this extraordinary river and required scheduled releases in a ground breaking decision.
In response to of the state’s draft basin plan for southern Vermont, American Whitewater and scores of boaters pressed the state to support the expansion of releases on the West River. Restrictions by the Corps of Engineers and Agency of Natural Resources have led to the elimination of nearly all scheduled boating opportunities on the West River over the past two decades, eliminating recreation opportunity and hurting the local economy. AW and its partners have been working to restore these releases.
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.
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
