Learn About Fish Migration in Our River

Bellows Falls, VT— Fish migration on the Connecticut River and tributaries is in full swing. Join Connecticut River Conservancy’s (CRC) River Steward Kathy Urffer for a talk about our migratory fish species in the Connecticut River and how they navigate the fish ladders on their journey to and from the sea. Saturday, June 22, 1-3pm at the Bellows Falls Fishway & Visitor Center in Bellows Falls, VT. The number of shad, alewife & blueback herring have already exceeded last year’s totals! In addition, American eel and sea lamprey are beginning to make their way up the river to Vermont and New Hampshire. Now is the best opportunity to see them as they pass through fish ladders on their epic journey!

June 22 – Bellows Falls Fish Ladder Tour
1:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Bellows Falls Fish Ladder and Visitor Center, 17 Bridge St, Bellows Falls, VT 05101
