About This Event

The Dead River might be thought of as a western branch of the Kennebec River, having its headwaters along the Canadian boundary and in the 4000-foot mountain peaks of western Maine. The Dead River’s north and south branches combine in Flagstaff Lake, which was formed by Flagstaff Dam in 1949. Water releases from this dam, varying from 900 cfs to several thousand, bring joy to paddlers throughout the summer. This 16-mile trip should only be done by experienced paddlers or with a local outfitter or guide, as it is a demanding day trip with challenging whitewater. 

The release at Long Falls dam on this day is scheduled at 6000+ cfs. NOTICE:  These flows may change without notice due to license requirements and/or water conditions at the time of the scheduled flow.
