On June 5 a celebration at the Grand Falls Fishway was held, near the banks of the St. Croix River. The event was in honor of the reopening of all the St. Croix to the native alewives. Beginning in 1995, the Maine Legislature had closed the Grand Falls and other fishways to the alewives on the concern they might be adversely impacting the smallmouth bass, an introduced alien species.

The Atlantic Salmon Federation (ASF) announced it has now restored access to 15,000 acres of ponds and lakes and 300 miles of river for Maine’s native sea-run fish. These achievements are part of ASF’s Maine Headwaters Project that is focused on restoring critical spawning habitat to sea-run fish in tributaries identified as high priorities in State of Maine fisheries restoration plans. While the target species are Atlantic salmon and alewives, these restoration projects provide a broad range of benefits for all fish and wildlife along the river corridor.

Maine Department of Marine Resources, Division of Sea-Run Fisheries and Habitat staff conduct routine monitoring of the abundance and status of adult Atlantic salmon and other fish species in many Maine rivers. Staff operate traps at fishways and barrier weirs to monitor fish returns to the Penobscot (Milford Dam), and Narraguagus (Cherryfield Dam); Great Lakes Hydro, America operates a trap at Weldon Dam in the upper Penobscot drainage, Pennsylvania Power and Light operates a trap at the Ellsworth Dam on the Union River; Florida Power and Light operates traps and lifts at two hydroelectric projects on the Saco River, Maine DMR operates one on the Androscoggin River, and the St. Croix Waterway Commission operates a trap at the Milltown Dam on the St. Croix River. These fish counting facilities are typically operated from May through early November each year. Staff update the statewide trap catch summary weekly or more often during the peak of the fish migrations. The statewide trap catch table includes counts of sea-run salmon captured on Maine rivers and salmon removed from the river as broodstock for restocking of Maine rivers and DOES NOT include captures of aquaculture strays or captive reared adult salmon released from Federal hatcheries.

File Troff document West Branch Brook Culvert Assessment and Design - Final Report
Project SHARE conducted a preconstruction site assessment of the 30-00-0 road crossing of West Branch Brook. West Branch Brook is a head water tributary of the Narraguagus River. The Beddington Lake HUC 12 is the top priority focus area for Atlantic salmon restoration in the Narraguagus River. Funding for this project was provided by the Gulf of Maine Council with assistance from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Maine Fishery Resources Office.

The restoration of the Penobscot River is an unprecedented and innovative effort to remove two dams and build a state-of-the-art fish bypass around a third. As a result, hundreds of miles of habitat along the Penobscot and its tributaries will be re-opened for sea-run fish, with tremendous benefits to biological and human communities along the river.

When the project is complete, sea-run fish - such as salmon, sturgeon, alewives and shad - will have significantly improved access to about 1,000 miles of upstream habitat.
