Meet new friends, and paddle better!

Lower Lamoille

Sunday Apr 17, 2005
Participants:
Kayak: Nick Jewett
Open Canoe: Richard Larsen, Sheri Larsen
Organizer: Richard Larsen
Difficulty: intermediate WW
Level: medium high
Gauge (cfs): 4000

The trip planned for April 16 was moved to the 17th, because the river was at 9000 cfs on the 16th. The 9000 cfs level is runnable for open boats, but the potential swims can be long, so we waited a day for the level to drop. We put in just below the Fairfax dam (which is an impressive sight at 4000 cfs) and paddled to the takeout between the bridges below Five Chutes. We ran into Weed and Zilic in Two-Island Rapid, and our group paddled down with them. No drama, no swimmers, just a good float down the river.
