Atlantic Salmon Federation Talk

I attended a presentation by Andrew Good of the ASF at a dinner last night with the Boston Flyfishers Club at St. Botoph's club. He indicated that the conservation efforts as well a numerous other factors including weather patterns in the north Atlantic should show a big Up spike in Salmon in the Kenebec region. Efforts are still underway to open the larger water shed rivers to salmon which will have a positive benefit as well. Just FYI

Good to hear ASF is talking about the Kennebec. My brother and I kayaked it in November to look for Salmon Redds, it's a bittersweet trip. We drifted over acres and acres of nice spawning habitat that is now exposed and available due to the dam removal. Unfortunatly we didn't see any redds, but it's a very big river. Every year some fish do seem to return. This summer DMR found a couple in the ledge pools below Ticonic Falls. One was a Penobscot fish the other was a Wild Kennebec Salmon. This summer I saw one leap below five mile island. Theres light at the end of the tunnel I believe, buts it's still a very long tunnel.

Yes.. part of the discussion was the removal of the dams and the important emphasis was on expanding these river ways which would expand the spaning areas in the smaller tributaries.
