River Description


The headwaters of Wassataquoik Stream rise on the north slope of the Mount Katahdin massif in northern Maine. A remote, pristine mountain stream, it flows southeasterly and joins the East Branch of the Penobscot River a few miles west of the Town of Stacyville. The lower nine miles provides an excellent Class II/III paddle in a scenic, wilderness setting. The almost continuous rapids are suitable for intermediate boaters or anyone who loves paddling wild, picturesque rivers. It can be run as a day trip or as the first day of an extended canoe trip, finishing on the East Branch.

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.
