Not a Fan of Alewife Access
To the Editor:
Maine Guide Lance Wheaton and I recently met with DIF&W Commissioner Camuso to express our extreme concerns about a major threat to Washington County.
We believe our area is at the precipice of an environmental disaster of immense proportions, due to the impact of alewives that can now reach watersheds because of the removal of blockages in the fishways at the Milltown, Woodland and Grand Falls dams along the St. Croix River, which forms the Maine/New Brunswick international boundary.
I wrote a detailed letter regarding the threat to Commissioner Camuso, which is available in its entirety here.
Thank you for helping me share this information to protect the outstanding salmon fishery offered by the Grand Lake area.
