Last fall I visited with my friend Tom, and we went to Batsto Village. Tom showed me a fish ladder that was installed at the dam ( he actually helped pour the concrete!) whose purpose is to restore the ancient pathway for spawning bronze-back herrings, and possibly other fish species as well. I found this fascinating, and recalled another much larger ladder that was installed next to the dam on Union Lake. Anyone have additional info on when to expect the herring to arrive at Batsto? That would be awesome to see---and I can imagine the pickerel and bass fishery in Batsto Lake will benefit immensely!
