Ran it on 6/12/13 at 1,040 cfs. Nice fun level. At this level is is mostly class I-II with several fun class III rapids, and one section of moving flatwater.
Personal notes from the one and only Kyle Duckworth. Year and cfs notes.
2000 780 cfs "medium low"
2001 800 cfs "medium"
2003 2000 cfs "primo"
2004 470 cfs "bumpy.... still some good surf spots. Minimum I would run it."
2005 1300 cfs No comment
2006 700 cfs "a little bony, especially if you flip, but good surfing"
2008 1000 cfs "medium....a good level, with multitudes of small surfing waves"
2011 1300 cfs "a good, healthy level"
Seems I have had fun surfing the small waves in the first half of the run at any level.

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.
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!
