Access is difficult to this spot, From the dam below Brattle Street there is no access due to a disgruntled land owner who will stop anyone from the only access across his land. You can paddle across Leigh’s Mill Pond and scramble and rock climb through overgrown poison Ivy into the gorge from below but carrying a boat is near impossible. The couple hundred yards of rapids below the dam are unrunable in my opinion. There is lots of rebar and mill debris in the current as well as large concrete and granite blocks forming dangerous sieves. This is, however, one of the best and least known trout fishing spots in York County!

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.
