The Alewives are here!

A huge school of alewives showed up in the fish ladder this morning, April 25. It was truly an April surprise because it’s really early for their arrival in Damariscotta Mills! We’re sure glad to welcome them—but we’ll see if more come in behind them right away or if this is an unusually enterprising group. Either way, for the time being there are alewives to see in the fish ladder!
