Is there a way to see how fast the Merrimack River is moving day to day?

I go there annually to kayak but this year I have an injury with stitches so I’m looking to see if the River is moving fast enough that I don’t have to paddle too hard. Most years it moves pretty slow, maybe 1mph but sometimes it’s been whipping, guessing at maybe 5mph? Google has failed me, but I might not be using the right terminology. Trying to see if I can gauge what this Saturday will look like. Thanks! submitted by /u/buttholeguy2222 [link] [comments]

Julie Macuga paints two scenes when describing the Merrimack River – the first as a scenic site, where kayakers and canoers alike can float in nature. The second image is an ugly industrial site crowding the waterway with tall, brown smokestacks spewing clouds of carbon, polluting the water and air.
