Paddle the Presumpscot River from the Lincoln St. launch in Westbrook

A nice river paddle up and back on the Presumscot River. This section is uninterrupted for 4.8 miles between Mallison Falls and Saccarappa dam. We'll paddle upstream for an hour or so and return to the launch. Plenty of parking at the site which is also the out door skating rink, but no other facilities. River Rd in Windham becomes Cumberland St in Westbrook. Turn right at the traffic light onto Bridge St. and turn right on to Lincoln St. in .7 miles. Launch is on the left in .2 miles. Coming from Portland, go out on Brighton Ave to Westbrook and go past Sappi paper mill on Cumberland St. Turn left onto Bridge St at the traffic light. Follow same as above. The address is 47 Lincoln St. Westbrook.

    It was cool, I got there a bit late, work related, paddled like a champ to catch up, met a small group of people, I hope to meet more people next time.

    Bill do you sell old town kayaks if so I'm looking for a price on a vapor 12

    July 29, 2014

    • Bill A.

      We do not at this time sell Old Town. We do deal in used canoes and kayaks, so you never know what we may have in inventory. We publish what we have for sale on our Facebook page.

    I will need one rental for my husband on Weds. Thanks. So far the weather looks good!

    I will need a rental for 7/30. Thank you, Bill.

    I'm still interested in renting a calypso for Wednesday. Thanks.

    July 27, 2014

  • Bill A.

    If you asked for a rental for this paddle when it was scheduled for the 23rd, and still want one for the 30th, please confirm that you need one for the 30th. Thanks!

    1 · July 26, 2014

    • gail

      I will need 3 rentals for the 30th

    I went and got out of the river prior to the rain or lightening. it worked out perfectly. I was lucky. I saw a beaver and went under a stone bridge. A nice paddle.

    1 · July 23, 2014

    • Bill A.

      Were you the only one there, or did someone else go with you?

      July 26, 2014

  • Bill A.

    We are under a severe thunderstorm watch and a line of strong storms is dropping down from the White Mountains and heading this way. It is expected to be in the area between Sebago Lake and Portland between 6 and 9 pm, just when we are scheduled to be paddling on the Presumpscot. I think it is in the best interest of safe paddling that we postpone our trip on the Presumpscot from Westbrook until next Wednesday (long range forecast for Monday is not so good). Same place and time, but on Wednesday 7/30/14.

    I need a boat rental: narrow with long paddle so I don't drip and bang the boat :)

    July 23, 2014

  • Bill A.

    Just in case - Rain date for this paddle will be Monday, 7/28, same time and place. We'll make the call by 4:00 tomorrow afternoon.

    1 · July 22, 2014

    • Bill A.

      Weather for Monday not looking so good either, so I postponed this event to next Wednesday, 7/30

    Bill,
    My husband will need a rental. I have a feeling though that we are going to have thunderstorms tomorrow evening from the looks of the weather....

    July 22, 2014

    • Bill A.

      And he shall have one! Yes, I'm also concerned about t-storms tomorrow afternoon and evening. Rain date for this paddle will be Monday, 7/28.

    Bill,
    What is the cost for a rental? I have my own kayak, but some friends might be interested in going if they could get a rental
