The Roach River is a river in Piscataquis County, Maine. From the outlet of Third Roach Pond (45°39′02″N 69°14′29″W) in Shawtown (Maine Township A, Range 12, WELS), the river runs 19.1 miles (30.7 km) west, through a chain of ponds. The Flow sequence through the ponds is from the Fourth Roach Pond through the Third Roach Pond, Second Roach Pond, and First Roach Pond to empty into Moosehead Lake, the source of the Kennebec River, in Spencer Bay (T1, R14, WELS). The Seventh Roach Pond drains through the Sixth Roach Pond in a separate tributary to the Third Roach Pond. No fifth Roach Pond is shown on modern maps.
In 2014, a section of Roach River, which was viewed as essential nursery habitat for young fish, was accidentally destroyed during dam construction on land owned by the Appalachian Mountain Club.
