The lowermost stream to flow into the Jones River, aside from tidal creeks, is Smelt or Herring Brook. Rising in the pond of the same name at the base of Monk's Hill, it flows through a valley between Prospect Hill and Raboth, forms a millpond for the works of Cobb and Drew, Inc., then under the main highway and through the herring (alewive) weir, under the railroad and into the river at the head of the mouth of the river reach.
