Paddled this on 10/7/11 at around 2.3 ft (about 300 cfs). This is as low as I would paddle this as it gets pretty boney. I put in just outside (south) of Roxbury on Rt. 17 (there's a great spot to park a vehicle right next to an ATV trail.) I would advise you park your take out shuttle at Swift River Falls as there isn't anything more than sporadic class 2's (just enough room to park 1-2 vehicles here.) That being said, there are some nice rapids on this stretch, mostly 2's but there is one 3 (at this level anyway.) On 11/13/11 I paddled it at around 2.7 ft (400 cfs). Still class 2's and the one class 3 at this level. A little less boney but still rough on a boat. This is a great river for those who live in this region who are tired of Errol, NH.

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.
