Atlantric Salmon in Maine

The article sited below details a plan to open up the Penobscot River in Maine to atlantic salmon and other anadromous fish by demolishing existing dams that have restricted access to traditional spawning water for decades.

For those of us who remember the promising beginning of the efforts to restore atlantic salmon runs in the Penobscot, and then were disappointed with the almost total extinction of the fish in recent years, this is a real step forward.

I can remember the truly exciting salmon fishing the Penobscot provided as recently as the early 1980's. That fishing was very much the result of restoration efforts that, IMHO, would very likely have been successful had the dams -- especially the Veazie Dam -- been breached back then. Better late than never and, hopefully, not too late for an old fart like me.
