Interesting read on the status and issues of U.S. atlantic salmon restoration. Very depressing to me since 20 years ago it appeared they were on there way to restoration in New England.
There is a link on this site to another government report on the restoration efforts and interesting information on the Connecticut River.
Can't believe the size of those shad runs on the Connecticut, don't hear much about the fly fishing for them though, whats up with that fishery.
I was just getting into fishing the Delaware shad with the fly rod when I left the east in 1979, but that is a fishery I would definitely target if I was close to the Conneticut river.
