About the taunton river


The Taunton River is a 38-mile-long river in southeastern Massachusetts that flows into Mount Hope Bay and ultimately into the Atlantic Ocean. The river has a rich history, as it was used by Native Americans for fishing and hunting, and was later used by colonists for transportation and industry. The river is fed by several smaller tributaries and features several reservoirs and dams, including the North Dighton Reservoir and the Weir River Dam. These reservoirs and dams provide hydroelectric power for the region. The Taunton River is also used for recreational purposes, including boating, fishing, and swimming. The river is home to a diverse range of fish species, including striped bass, herring, and alewife, making it a popular destination for anglers. The river also supports agriculture in the surrounding area, including cranberry farming.
