Ride the Shetucket River

September 1st, 2018

The Town of Sprague has resumed the popular Ride the Shetucket events for 2018.

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 2018 are:

April 28, May 19 & 26, June 23 & 30, July 21 & 28, August 18 & 25, September 22 & 29, October 13 (a night run)

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.
