This is a great place for fishermen and for paddlers who don’t mind weaving their way though a stump-filled reservoir. The wooded hillsides and scattered islands lend a scenic beauty. Look for great blue heron prowling the west-end marshes.
Assabet Reservoir, locally known as Mill Pond and also called the A-1 Site, just a few miles from busy Route 9 in Westborough, provides a wonderful place to paddle. Thousands of closely spaced tree stumps, left over from the creation of this flood-control reservoir in 1969, keep out most motorboats and make paddling here somewhat of a challenge.
