Level: low boatable

Rain in early September brought levels back up and just a week after Beaverfest I was thinking about a Missisquoi release.  As it turned out, Enel had to take a turbine off-line for repair, dumping an extra 800 cfs into the river and making for a very fun Saturday.

 

We had a modest level of around 1000 cfs... lowish but still fun.  Per standard Missisquoi protocol, we did laps as a big group (numbering at least 10 people), and were pleasantly surprised to see a couple Quebec friends show up too.  I don't remember how many laps we did... I think four as a group then Noah and I finished up with two more.

 

Most excitingly, I found a great new line through bottom of the S-Turn rapid that is really quite unique and amusing... in a good way!  Don't be fooled by the run only being a mile long... there is a lot to do here.
