The Alewives are coming!

The Alewives are coming!

While the exact dates are unpredictable, usually in early May, the alewives migrate back to Patten Stream and navigate the fishway at Rt. 172 in order to reach Patten Pond where they spawn.

This year again, the Alewife Committee will be scheduling volunteers in 30-minute intervals to observe and count the fish that reach the upper end of the stream at the North Bend Road crossing.

To learn more about the alewife migration and its importance, or to help with the counting, please contact the Town Office concerning your interest.
