Dam Removal, always a good thing.

Here in the east we have a lot of small Dams, some which date back to the colonial era and others to the industrial revolution, and some like the Calco Dam are recent.  All dam have an impact on the streams environment, while large bottom release Dams create cold water habit for trout these smaller top water release Dams have major negative impact trout and migrating species.

It's a always a good day when one of these dams is taken down and fish migration is restored.  It will only take a short time for the Shad to re-establish themselves upstream and soon there after the Striped Bass should follow.
