There are some good stretches to paddle in this river system, the Route 351 Bridge Medusa to Deans stretch is one of them.  
A bit of exercise and just hanging out with mother nature have a lot of people coming here. This section is quite short so it's not like you're gonna spend hours on the river in one stretch.

Briefly about the general area:
Going for a hike on the Spruceton Trail is always a magnificent adventure, and what would winter be without some skiing at Windham Mountain. You'll in fact wish for more hours in a day to enjoy all the entertaining things in the Catskill Mountains. You'll meet a lot of folks from Medusa here; when you're here it's always fun to take a look at John Boyd Thacher State Park.
