Atlantic Salmon Season – With Winter Hanging On

Milford Fish Lift

This photo is of the main hopper at Milford Dam.  In the photo the hopper is at the top of it's lift to dump fish into the upper flume.  From here, the fish will swim upstream to a collection/counting facility where Atlantic salmon broodstock will be collected.  River herring will also be collected for stocking further upstream.  American shad will be returned directly to the river.  This facility and the Orono trap begin operation today, April 15. 2014. The image was taken about 10 days ago. (photo Don Dow/NOAA)
