This guide provides up-to-date information on more than 2,000 miles of river, including the Connecticut, Deerfield, Concord, Housatonic, and many more. Whether a novice canoeist, experienced kayaker, or seasoned angler, no paddler should be without an AMC River Guide.

Reviews - What do customers think about AMC River Guide Massachusetts/Connecticut/Rhode Island, 4th: A Comprehensive Guide to Flatwater, Quickwater and Whitewater (AMC River Guide Series)?
Great river reviews - your mileage may vary! Jan 3, 2007
A handy sized, informative guide to rivers in our area. We have used this to plan numerous trips on rivers and have found the guide to be (relatively) accurate and easy to use. Having said that, we discovered (duh!) that rivers change over time and that this guide is a great STARTING point for trip planning. Good scouting and maybe talking to people with experience on the river in question are valuable parts of good trip prep. There is a website for the book where people can submit changes or inaccuracies that they have discovered - this helps to keep the guide current. All in all one of the best we've looked at.
