Jessup River

Is it possible to paddle up the Jessup River into Indian Lake?
If so...what is it like?

I believe it is down river to Indian Lake. Search the site and you will find lots of info. Short story - you can paddle/line/walk down depending on water level. Few go the other way.

Posts: 81 the Jessup flows into Indian Lake. I read everything I could find...might be better to paddle around from the camp ground. The section from Long Island to the Jessup looks nice.

I've paddled the Jessup a couple of times. We put in at the bridge on Rt. 30. We were going to Dug Brook Falls (I think that's the name. I don't have my map or books handy). We took out maybe a half mile before the brook because the river turned into a rock garden. Pulled out on the R side, left the boats there and walked an obvious path along the river. When we got to where the brook empties into the river we crossed the brook and walked up it to the falls. It was a really nice paddle and hike. Thanks for reminding me, I think I'll do it again sometime.
