Please avoid the section of the Clinton River between downtown Rochester and Yates as the river flow in this section has moved to a bypass channel leaving the normal route completely dry above and below the Yates Dam.
The bypass channel directs flow away from the main channel it also creates of potentially dangerous conditions upstream of Yates Dam. Please do not paddle down the bypass channel.
Preliminary plans have been drawn up for a proposed solution and the Clinton River Watershed Council is working with the City, and other partners to block off the bypass channel and direct all flows back into the the main river channel.
