Downstream view of Deerfield River at Monroe Bridge, Massachusetts. Notice the kayakers on the lower left. The spot is popular with white water enthusiasts, who frequent the river during scheduled flow releases.

This reach used to be called The Dryway. Prior to the most recent dam relicensing, there were times when all water was held back as part of the power generation process. This left a dry streambed. Now there is a minimum flow of 73 cfs.
