Herring Climbing the Fish Ladder at Amoskeag Fishways!

Amoskeag Fishways at 4 Fletcher Street in Manchester invites you to watch thousands of river herring migrating up the Merrimack River to spawn. The fish ladder provides a passageway for migrating fish to swim around the Amoskeag Dam and continue upriver to their spawning habitat, and viewing windows allow a close look at this natural phenomenon. This year there are more herring than have been seen in over twenty years. Migration season is May 2 until June 18. Other fish you might see migrating up our ladder are American shad, sea lamprey, Atlantic salmon and juvenile American eels.
