Kennebec River Info

Tim,

Thanks for the update. Here's an older site that is full of the background information on the long struggle to get the Kennebec Salmon some recognition and help. Excellent pictures and links to the dam removal story.

Anyone with more recent information would be appreciated if they made the information/links available.

There is an old Greek saying that a civilization is highly developed when its elders plant a tree knowing they will never sit in the shade of that tree. Atlantic Salmon restoration is still a long shot and a tenuous gamble, but I can't think of a better legacy for my son and daughters (unless it would be Eastcoast steelhead runs in the Charles River !! )
