River Description

Not to be confused with Cathance Stream in Washington County.
Posted by Justin Manter on 4/4/02
This is a gorgeous class III- IV creek run with 2 optional class-V waterfalls for the stout of heart. The river is very wild despite its location and the scenery is excellent.

Ran it at 1.8' at the gauge at the put in on 10/17/11. This is almost as low as you want to run it. Great day on the river for my first tie on it. Parked at the abandoned home, downstream of the bridge on river right, which is OK to do.

Bellows Falls (VT) Flow Study Reveals Hidden Whitewater

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.
