Things Looking up For Connecticut River Shad
According to data released by the Connecticut River Coordinator’s office of the US Fish and Wildlife Service in Sunderland, MA, American Shad migrated up the River in record numbers this year. At the Turner's Falls fish ladder 147, 502 fish were counted. This is higher than any count in the last 35 years and is a four-fold increase compared to the previous top year, which was 2014. Similar increases were noted at Vernon Dam where 39, 791 Shad came up river. Still, a major drop off occurs by the time the shad are counted at Bellows Falls. This year just 44 were seen. This is better, however, than the previous three years when the shad count was zero.
