Habitats and Wildlife
This 124-acre pond with brown-colored water and a sandy bottom has 1.7 miles of shoreline. Its average depth is 5-6 feet. Within the pond is the small, wooded Osceola Island.
Some of the fish observed here include: smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, yellow perch, bluegill, brown bullheads, shiners, chain pickerel, pumpkinseed, black crappie, white sucker, American eel, golden shiner, and white perch. Historically, the pond was a spawning site for herring that swam upstream from the Taunton River to the Satucket River. A Native American fishing weir was reported at its outlet.
Poor Meadow Brook rises from wetlands in North Hanson and joins with the Shumatuscacant River within Hanson’s Poor Meadow Brook Conservation Area. The stream continues to Robbins Pond in East Bridgewater, where it empties into the Satucket River, part of the Taunton River watershed.
