Lake Sabbatia is a designated Great Pond and is known for good summer and winter fishing. There's a paved boat ramp off Bay Street that is maintained by the Taunton Jaycees. The lake has been stocked with both Northern Pike (1985 & 1987) and Tiger Muskie. The bottom is mostly muck and there is heavy vegetation on many of the coves. This is a fully recreational lake and great for water sports. A large island sits near the eastern shore with shallow water between it and the shore. The dam is located between the lake and Mill River and is used to control lake level and possible flooding. The lake is fed by the Snake River. It's a beautiful lake for a kayak ride around the shoreline as the wildlife is abundant and there are many coves to explore.
