River Description

From a comment:
"If you love hauling your boat over beaver dams, through swamps and woods then this is the stream for you. Don't waste your time. The class IV rating (since changed--StreamTeam) is a joke. The few rapids that are actually runnable barely qualify as class I...Everything else on this stream is both log choked and so narrow and shallow that to run them would surely mean deep gouges in your boat. There are even some sections where the stream, without warning, flows under large boulders and through micro-canyons that would surely pin any boater expecting clear paths the entire route."

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.
