Saco River Conditions

Know Before You Go!

REPORT DATE – April 4, 2020

The winter snow is melting quickly and the Saco River is currently at typical spring levels. Were looking forward to warmer spring days in the heat of the summer.

We’re as excited as you are to get back on the river but of course, safety is our #1 concern. We are paying close attention to the ongoing crisis and hope to have a plan of action soon this spring.
