As the Pemigewasset River meanders through a pastoral valley, its gentle current and fun riffles carry you to sandy islands that beckon to be explored. The paddle described here is all quick-moving flat water; there are no rapids, but the current will carry your boat along a peaceful ride through a beautiful valley and a couple of fun riffles along the way. Combined with plenty of swimming, island exploring, and world-class picnicking, this is a great trip for a sunny summer afternoon. The fishing is good (plenty of brook trout, rainbow trout, and smallmouth bass patrol these waters) and for extra fun on hot days, bring along an inner tube or two that the kids can ride and you can tow behind the boat. Dog-friendly, swimming, fishing.
