Mill Race

Location: from riffles above the entry of the millrace to the end of the point bar on the easterly side

The entry of the 1790's millrace waterway adds additional flow. to the South Branch.  The head of the entry is a sloped weir creating a auger-like force on the water grinding out any sand deposits.  The result is the 2nd deepest pool on the property.  This pool is overhung by an artistic willow draping inchworms into the water in mid-May. The westerly bank is thick with Grey and Red Dogwood.  This pool is best fished from the easterly side with a crossing just about the millrace entry. Watch the high-water flows.  The pool and strength of the hydraulic flows can easily be underestimated.
