Good boatable flow. Put-in at CR-3. Take-out 7.8 miles downstreem at CR-19, river right, just past the bridge. Flow at 1700 cfs @ USGS 05338500 SNAKE RIVER NEAR PINE CITY, MN gauge. More than a half dozen fun class 1 to barely class 2 rapids sections at this flow all contained within the second half of the run. Beginners will love it at this flow.

Penobscot River Dams to be Removed!

Kevin Colburn

Atlantic Salmon and other imperiled fish species will soon have hundreds of additional miles of habitat. A recent decision between a power company, NGO's, tribes, and government agencies calls for the removal of two dams on Maine's Penobscot River and the bypassing of a third. American Whitewater applauds this huge win for rivers and is recruiting volunteers to assist with our work on the project. There is a public meeting December 2nd.
