Jesse-k-zomgaup-by deb b mongaup powerhouse waveKCCNYs favorite whitewater releases:

Mongaup (Class 2+) has schedule releases 1 day every other weekend from April-October and the schedule is normally approved by KCCNY and other area whitewater groups in early March.
They also publish their energy release schedule a day or 2 ahead of time. Mongaup is closed due to eagle nesting until April 1 (no fooling).

Lehigh aug 2014 by brennan carleyLehigh offers great class 2 water and  releases which (we try to)  alternate with the Mongaup for 2 days from mid may to labor Day. 2024 release schedule.

  • May: 11, 18, 25, 26
  • June: 8, 9, 22, 23
  • July: 13, 14, 20, 21, 27, 28
  • August: 3, 4, 10, 11, 17, 18, 24*, 25*, 31*
  • September: 1* + Columbus Day weekend ‘mega’ release.

Not far from the Lehigh or Mongaup is the Class 1-2 Lackawaxen,  a great first whitewater stream with lots of avoidable features that has schedule releases Fridays in July and early August.

dragons-tooth-drywayDeerfield River in Massachusetts offers both the class 4 Dryway/Monroe Bridge section and the class 2 Fife Brook Section that ends in the Class 3 Zoar Gap.
As of early Jan. 2024 AMC Boston has posted a schedule https://amcbostonpaddlers.org/documents/river-releases/

A few have lamented the loss of the actual release calendar which was on the old KCCNY.com website. We hope to bring this back, but need help in both programing and data entry (with keeping the schedule up to date being the biggest issue as bad data is worse than no data). If you are interested, contact us.
