Paddling mainly in the US of A I don't often post here. But I met a gent named Mark up on the Dead who explained that Quebec City is about three hours closer (not counting customs) than Boston so I thought some of you might be interested. Oh yeah look for The Forks, Me to find the take out. The Kenebec Gorge is right there too for those with more skills and stones than me.

The releases were scheduled as 2400 cfs Saturday and 1800 Sunday. Per the gage gurus we actualy got about 3200 and 2200
All I know is that it was good class III fun for open boaters and the only time I see 1 kayak for every 10 OCs.

Pictures here.

I have only done the Dead twice..its a drop dead gorgeous river for sixteen miles of almost constant rapids. But that does look like a 3200 cfs release. I havent done it that high ..rather at 2500 and there were more rocks showing then.

The downside is that you really can't watch the scenery!

Great pix, Tom.. There are a lot of Quebec paddlers and open canoeists on this river. I have not seen many kayaks at all.

I suppose at some point I ought to move this to the US section..maybe later.
