Map 7 ~ Lyme/Thetford
Printer friendly map
the river has gained some width from tributaries
large and small, it has not left the problems of
erosion behind. Watch your wake carefully, and
remember to reduce speed while passing other
boaters and the piers of the North Thetford bridge,
one of hundreds of covered bridges lost during the
flood of 1936.
The river is too narrow throughout this section
for legal use of ski craft.
Enjoy birdwatching at the many setbacks where
tributaries enter the mainstem. Providing valuable
waterfowl habitat, many of these wetlands have been
protected by the states and the Upper Valley Land
Trust in concert with the towns. Lyme has added a
canoe access at the mouth of Hewes Brook as part of
one such protection project. For boating services,
Fairlee Marine is located just off the river at the
south end of Fairlee village.
Information on current
and projected flows at Connecticut River mainstem
dams is available through TransCanada Hydro
Marine Patrol: Toll Free in NH
(1-877-642-9700) or 603-293-2037. For the
safety of all, please call if you observe illegal
or dangerous boating activity.
