Ride the Shetucket River

September 30th, 2017

The River is low....       

The Shuttle will not run on Saturday, August 26.

The Town of Sprague will provide a free shuttle between River Park and Scotland Dam.

There will be NO water release scheduled thus we will only provide transport when the river is at a level that will naturally provide for easy travel. 

Participants can put in any time between 10:00 and 12:00.

You can ride the river as many times as time and the water level allows.

The ride is 4 miles long and takes approximately 2 hours.

Dates for 2017 are:
April 29th, May 27th, June 24th, July 29th, August 26th, September 30th, October 14th (at night)

Since Ride the Shetucket is level sensitive, check the Town website prior to the event for any cancellation postings.

We will be planning for hikes up along the Shetucket, over the Scotland Dam then back down along the Shetucket on days when the river level is too low to kayak (or tube down).

Paddlers need to have PFD's and a distress whistle.
