The Turners Falls Fishway will be open through Sunday, June 16. Spring on the Connecticut River offers an unrivaled opportunity to witness the migration of shad, sea lamprey and other anadromous fish. These fish migrate from the ocean and head upriver to spawn in the rivers of their birth. A visit to the Turners Falls Fishway provides an opportunity to learn about these amazing journeys.
Admission is free and the facility is open Wednesday through Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. We are also open Monday, May 27 for the Memorial Day holiday. The Fishway is located on First Street, off Avenue A (15 First Street, Turners Falls). For information please call 1-800-859-2960.
