Boating, Fishing, and Travel Information for Salmon Falls River, NH

Salmon Falls River is said to be navigable for small craft for about 3 miles to just below South Berwick, Maine. However, due to the extreme currents in this area, extreme caution is advised.

“I paddled a kayak up the Salmon Falls River on 6/23/2020 to the head of tide/navigation in South Berwick, ME. It is true that “small” craft can navigate to the dam but at high tide I would estimate that there is maybe 2 – 3 feet of clearance to get around the rocks and mud flats and I am not sure I could paddle my kayak into the pool below the dam at low tide. There is a half tide ramp at the dam for hand launching only but there is a good pebbly bottom so its easy to climb in and out of small boats.”  – Kenneth S.
