The first alewife of the season was caught Wednesday morning (March 23) at Wreck Pond. Fish monitoring will continue now until June, around and during the new and full moons. The cofferdam is being set for installation of another 50-60 feet of fish passage which will bring the total to 470 feet at some time next week. Demobilization is still set for the first week in April. As of now, there have been no Piping Plover observed on or around the site.
The fyke net is set once again at Spring Lake’s Wreck Pond to see if all this warm weather has led to an early herring run. The net will be tended twice a day to collect more fish data and confirm timing of the herring run over the next few months. Check back with the new moon to see what we have been catching.
