Taunton River - Church St to Vernon St







5-1-21 Paddled about 9 miles up the Taunton River today. Put-in was on the River St site (10 River St, Raynham, MA 02767). From here I paddle up a swiftly flowing Taunton River towards my goal at the Vernon St Bridge just after Camp Titicut. Just as I began my paddle I say with guy fishing.. Looks like he has been out there a little too long. I think the vultures have pecked him clean. I can't say I blame the guy. If I could spend every day by the river, I would do it too. The current become intense by the Vernon St bridge. You can see in the video posted above that it was basically impassible at this point. I took a break at Camp Titicut on the way back and then rode the current back to the truck. Paddle took about 4 hours.
