Check out the river description at the Farmington River Watershed Association website.
This run can be combined with the Hogback Road to Riverton section.
This section really needs a minimum of 4.20 to be paddle. Generally we look at flow rather than height, and 300cfs is about as low as you want to go. Also look at the flow coming in the Still River (which enters below the guage).

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.
American Whitewater has filed comments opposing the further diversion of water from the Farmington river in Connecticut by the Metropolitan District Commission. The Commission is proposing to divert up to 5 million gpd in order to supply the water needs of the University of Connecticut. The proposed diversion would reduce river flows and potentially affect paddling opportunities at Tarrifville, a valuable whitewater resource.
