May 25 So many fish this year!

It is truly a banner year for alewives! They are in by the thousands — everywhere you look, there are fish! They are streaming in by the fish house, the fish ladder is full, and they are passing into Damariscotta Lake by the thousands. It’s an amazing time to visit the fish ladder!

If you stop by on the weekends, you’ll find t-shirts and other fish ladder swag for sale! In case anyone wonders, we’re still raising funds, this time to replace the bridge over the fish ladder. All help is welcome!
