Maine River Whitewater Kayaking Story & Video
May 9, 2012
Writer Gabor Degre of the Bangor Daily News reports on a whitewater kayak paddle down the Mattawamkeag River on April 8.
Degre also shot video of the adventure, which you can read and viewed here:
I heard from several boaters that running the Mattawamkeag River usually becomes favorable around the end of the whitewater paddling season.
Due to a huge watershed the river stays high and runnable long after the smaller streams dry up. We had such a dry spell in the early spring of this year, so some friends and I decided to check out this river. After contacting several seasoned boaters about the features to see if it’s within our skill level, 5 of us decided to go for it.
