About the winnicut river
The Winnicut River is located in southeastern New Hampshire and is approximately 11 miles long. The river's name is derived from the Native American word "winnekit" meaning "pleasant place." Historically, the river was used for transportation and logging. Today, it is used for recreational activities such as fishing, kayaking, and hiking. The hydrology of the Winnicut River is influenced by the numerous reservoirs and dams along its length, including the Pawtuckaway Lake Dam and the Swasey Parkway Dam. These reservoirs are used for various purposes, including flood control and water supply. The river also supports agricultural activities, such as fishing for trout stocked by the state, and provides a valuable habitat for various wildlife species.
