May 5 More Fish!

A big school of alewives entered the fish ladder this morning and fish were already climbing pool to pool by the time I went for a look this morning. I was expecting to find fish—the sun was shining and it was warm (for early May in Maine), both good signs when waiting for alewives!
It seems likely that the run has now begun in earnest. So, it’s a good time to visit the fish ladder!
