There are already a couple of reports, so I won’t repeat. The important thing is, that the reservoir is again open for paddling and, besides kayaks, sail boats and the like, only boats with electric motors are permitted – so it is quiet.
Going north-west from Brighton Dam (the put-in is a bit off the dam in this direction) you have about 4-5 mile one way till the end of the reservoir. There are many shallow areas along both shores where you can practice wet exits, rolling etc. in shallow water with ample space where the bottom is flat. The water seems clean (should be – it is a source for drinking), so try to keep it this way. You can also paddle the area below the dam (I have not yet done this).
A good place to go flat-water paddling when the Potomac is flooded!
