About the branch river
The Branch River is a tributary of the Manitowoc River, located in Manitowoc County, Wisconsin. It is about 20 miles long and has a drainage area of approximately 143 square miles. The river's name is derived from the many branches that form the main stream. The hydrology of the river is characterized by a moderate gradient, with riffles and pools present throughout the length of the river. There are two major reservoirs on the river, the Collins Marsh Reservoir and the Mill Creek Reservoir. These reservoirs are used for recreational purposes such as fishing, boating, and camping. The river also has significance in agriculture, as it provides water for fields and farms in the surrounding area. The Branch River has a rich history, with evidence of Native American settlements and early European explorers and settlers.
