New England Whitewater River Guide, Gabler R.
The gauge info is an estimate based off the Shepaug which the Bantam flows into. The gauge is located just upstream of the confluence. If you have more information please leave a comment.
all strainers removed except for the one right before stoddard rd. we cut it up but the tree is just to big. hoping the natural flow will help it along
Does anyone ever try running over the low "Jambs" at the outlet of Bantam Lake?
With the floods of the spring of '07 this particular strainer is gone. There is always the possibility of new ones however.

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!
