This is a fun run for class I and II paddlers centrally located near Seacoast NH and Southern ME. Most of the river is easily boat scouted by experienced paddlers, who will find several fun small drops and a few small surfing waves. At Very High levels there are several spots with large wave trains and fast turbulant water - be sure, of course, to use caution with strainers on this and any "little" river.
If the water level is up to or flooding the small marshy area directly accross from the parking area (take-out) on Hubbard Road in No. Berwick, than the river above is runnable.
A more detailed description can be found in the AMC River Guide to Maine (and the NH / VT AMC guide as well)

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!
