Part of Adirondack Drainage

The clean, cold water, rushing over the rocky streambeds and bedrock outcrops, creates scenic beauty and sustains a healthy fishery. West Branch St. Regis Native Fish.

Millions of years of subsequent uplifts, erosion, and sedimentation followed. Glaciers that covered the metamorphic rock for thousands of years receded about 12,000 years ago, scuplting the mountains and streams that form the rivers of today.
