The fish came back!

After a cold and wet Memorial Day weekend, when the alewives backed out almost entirely, sunshine and warmth this week brought them back into the fish ladder. The run is definitely slowing but there are still fish to see.
Yesterday we observed a seal swimming along the entrance to the fish ladder. He (or she) swam by the fish house and up into the actual entrance to the fish ladder several times. Oddly, the alewives he was swimming through didn’t seem alarmed. You never know what you’ll see on a visit to the fish ladder!
