On a stretch of the Oswegatchie River near the Edwards/Fine
town line and between the South Edwards Dam and Grease Falls, there
are five drops.
The property around this drop is private so it is a water access only
This drop is a little over 1.6 miles upstream from the canoe launch.
It is about 250 yards above Falls #4. In keeping with our policy of giving
names to these unnamed falls base on the waterway they are on,
and since this is the fifth of the drops you encounter from the
canoe launch, we have chosen this name. It
should not be confused with Oswegatchie Falls, which is about
2.5 miles downstream from this location.
The channel divides around an island. River right is
pictured in the first photo. Because of the terrain, the river left
section was not able to be photographed. The second
picture shows where it exits around the island.
You will pass Oswegatchie River Falls #1, #2 and #4, Rock Dam
Falls and a couple of stretches of
rapids on the paddle to
this one. These will have to be portaged.
The Oswegatchie River flows to the St. Lawrence River in the
city of Ogdensburg.
