4 weeks ago about 290 cfs here. I would think over 400 like this says this could be a really fun run except for that paddle out.

Shively Falls in the spring can get pretty crazy, it seems like more of a class 4 early in the year.

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.
