River Description


Landowner relations have deteriorated in recent years on the Sheepscot. Please be very respectful of the locals. Don't drive too fast; don't litter; don't go undressing in public. Use your head, or all paddlers will have a major headache here!

I canoed this once in the fall with my parents. Don't recall the level, but it was a serious portagefest over at least a dozen beaver dams below the lake. The rapid at the end was too hard for our flatwater canoe. My dad and I have done a lot of canoeing, and I've kayaked a bunch, so we thought we'd try it.  We got immediately 180'd and stuffed into the right bank..that was enough for us :-). I suppose its class II-III in a kayak, but its short.

Bellows Falls (VT) Flow Study Reveals Hidden Whitewater

6/2/2015
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.
