Lower Tamarack River

Lower Tamarack River Professional Review and Guide

"The Lower Tamarack River is an intimate tributary of the St. Croix River with a lively current. Unfortunately, it is runnable only in spring or after heavy rains.

Without a gauge reading, you’ll have to rely on your intuition about the Lower Tamarack’s water level before you set out on the river. Generally the river is runnable only during a full flush of runoff during spring or after heavy local rains. That is especially true if you put in far upstream near Duxbury."
