The Shepaug, along with the Bantam, is one of the earliest rivers to free itself of ice and snow, so it is usually canoed during the middle or the end of March. The upper portions of the Shepaug are sportier than the lower, and in high water they can be very exciting. The stream starts quite narrow and remains so until the confluence with the Bantam. The Shepaug has many islands. Water flow depends on the dam situated at the start: since the upper riverbed is small, when there is a water release many trees suddenly seem to grow in several feet of water, something to concern canoeists because eddying out becomes trickier when you have to fight your way through the brush. Even though most of the trip is quick moving, there are no rapids that require scouting, although fallen trees can be a real hazard anywhere. The Shepaug is usually most challenging for open boats. A road follows the upper half, but it is usually not in view.
