    the river is the deepest at this point.

    I know that it is correct 'The river is deepest at this point.'
    But is it possible to say 'the river is the deepest at this point.'?

    Re: the river is the deepest at this point.

    The river is deep here.

    It's deeper further downstream.

    It's deepest at the estuary.

    There's no reason to add 'the' before the superlative.
