This river snakes for about 40 miles, slicing through farm country, swamps, and woodlots overshadowed by gentle hills that seem to roll on forever. Bath marks the transition from cold water (upstream) to warm water. Its union with the Tioga River in Painted Post forms the Chemung River. According to local lore, the original name was Conhocton, an Indian word meaning “log on the water,” but a drunken painter left the first n out of a village sign, and the name stuck. Key species: Brown trout
