Strong Atlantic Salmon Return

Atlantic Salmon

This year has had a great return of Atlantic Salmon and there have been numbers not seen in years.  “On the Penobscot River, biologists have counted more than 3,100 salmon at the Veazie dam fish trap so far — more than double the number that returned last year and the highest spawning levels since 1986.” Hopefully if this continues we can soon have a large enough return population that we can successfully target these awesome fish for catch and release.
