Does anyone know if the release is going to happen? I reserved a site but am worried that it will be a no go – also do you know if there is going to be the river shuttle that takes you and your gear halfway up the river from the parking lot? I know they did it in years past – don’t know if they still do – it’s been a while since I have been! Thanks!!!

Hello All;

I received the following from the State of Vermont Agency of Natural Resources Department of Forests, Parks & Recreation:

The Fall White Water Release at Jamaica State Park will be on Saturday, September 29th.

I also see the pool is up to 50 feet or so.

According to the Army Corp of Engineers, the release starts on Sat at 8:30 and lasts until the water runs out. According to the lady at Jamaica State Park, the shuttle will run from 8-4. She didn’t know what the cost would be, but in the past it was $10/trip or $15 for the day.

Last time (two years ago) I heard that they started the release in the middle of the night at a low level, and ramped up to the full 1500 cfs in the morning. The slow ramp up was to keep from washing all those salmon downstream.

Edited to correct the timeline (thanks Glenn)

Last year they were trying to not wash away the rest of the town.

I know that someone else called the park and was told the shuttle would start at 9:00 and park open at 9:00??

Life begins on the river. :)))))))

Hi Kelly

The park will be open with campers and the like, the earlier you are there the better.
