Could this alternately be हम आज तैर नहीं रहे? I know in the simple present the auxiliary होना tends to get dropped

Re: Dropping auxiliary, yes. Re: The change of word order that you made - That's OK, but it suggests a particular emphasis on "swimming", for example in contrast to something else that might have been discussed in the conversation.

Could this be "We ain't swimmin' nohow today"?
