Frenzy in Maine's Kennebec

September 21, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

Dave Sherwood reports that the stripers are now marauding alewives in the Kennebec River, a sea change from two decades ago when no baitfish entered the river at all. “At any one time, somewhere on the river, thousands and thousands of tiny, two to four inch long river herring — alewives, blueback herring or shad — are being corralled by striped bass into dead end coves and getting eaten alive.” On MaineToday.com.
