April 12: Branford Supply Ponds Fish Report

fishreport2The warm weather seems to finally be here, and so are the alewives! The fish counter reported a total of 216 fish as of April 12 (there was no fish report the preceding week). This number puts us on a par with last year’s total at this time, although we are still well behind 2014’s count.

We stopped by the fishway while waliking around the Supply Ponds on Sunday. We did not see any alewives but we did see lots of Eastern Painted Turtles!

If you are out walking in the Supply Ponds area, you might be able to see alewives. Walk to the bottom of the fishway and look immediately downstream of the entrance. The alewives seem to like the quieter water there and they sit under the bubbles in the eddies. Let us know if you see any fish!
