NH/VT Paddling

Vermont Paddlers Club - Home

is another good link. They paddle in NH/VT often. They are super nice and really laid back. Where do you want to rent a boat? Northern or Southern NH? There is a lot more WW in Maine, or Western Mass.(Deerfield/Zoar).

New Hampshire Boating

I'm not sure when you will be out there or what level you are at, but Saco Bound rents kayaks and canoes and has a location in Errol, NH. Home of the Rapid River and The Maggalloway. Both are damn controlled, but from what I remember the releases usually take place on alternating weekends in July and August. Saco Bound would be a good place to get this information. Check out Saco Bound: Maine Rafting Trips
for some more info and take a look at Total Whitewater Fun: Smooth Ledge, Rapid River, Maine if you want some info on the play feature on the Rapid.

ManchVegas play boating options

Check out crack pipe
on the Merrimack in Manchester. Its a nice wide wave/hole that is good at most summer flows. There are deep sticky parts for aerials and green parts for surfing. "All Outdoors" in Manchester sells kayaks and rents them too I think. They are a mile away or so. Bring nose plugs, there's a lot of urban run off in the H20.

New Hampsha.

I remember the West river in southern Vermont being a fun dam released run when I first started out. Pretty, too.

More NH/VT summer low water play.

There's a some pretty good surfing on The Connecticut River (Hartland Rapids). Usually a few people to paddle with there (Dartmouth and Vermonters), and all kinds of features to play in depending on flows. The Pemigewasset in Bristol has a good wave/hole(small feature), but may be good for some spins or a few ends in a short boat at this level.

Check out the CR 250, it could be a great boat tp play in up in NH o some low water, and then paddle some bouncy class IV in Maine.

The CR is a great ocean surf boat too if there's a swell in NH/Maine

Yeah, the CT river. When it gets above flood stage check out the Wave-o-saurus. It's by Holyoke, I think? Could be remembering that wong. You missed it this year I'm sure, but when the CT gets above 75000 or so...good times. The higher the better, watch out for trees floating down through.
