Stockbridge has more than its fair share of rivers and streams, making it the ideal place to spend a day relaxing on the water’s edge, or in the river during hot summer days. Residents and visitors enjoy several options in deciding where to go, including the White and Tweed Rivers and Fletcher and Stony Brooks. The Tweed and White Rivers are known far and wide for their excellent fishing, white water canoeing, and plentiful shore space for sitting in a beach chair and dipping your toes.
Everyone should spend some time in Vermont enjoying the river. Major roads have turn-offs that allow parking all up and down the shores. On a warm day you can see groups large and small tubing, kayakers paddling and friends and families swimming. One of the deepest fishing and swimming holes in the region is under the bridge on Blackmer Boulevard in Stockbridge. Just off Route 107, this bridge has parking off to either side and a trail that takes you down to the waterfront. It is a popular place for locals to spend the day fishing, floating, tanning, swimming and picnicking.
