The Chemung River watershed is a collection of the Chemung, Tioga, Cowanesque, Conhocton, Canisteo, and Susquehanna rivers. The Chemung flows 45 miles through New York and Pennsylvania, draining about 2,600 square miles of land. Historically, the Chemung was used by Native Americans and early settlers for transportation, agriculture, and lumbering. Today, the Chemung provides ample recreational opportunities, such as fishing, kayaking, and bird watching.
