Androscoggin River Fish Migration: Brunswick Hydro

Summer: If you are planning on being in the Brunswick area between mid-May and late June, be sure to visit FPL Energy’s Brunswick Hydro generating station on the Androscoggin River. Here you will find a glass wall viewing room to observe the annual spawning ritual of anadromous fish heading upriver. Species such as Herring, Salmon and Smallmouth Bass make their way up a 40 foot high, 570 foot long manmade fish ladder. The viewing room can accomadate up to 20 people and operates Wednesday through Sunday from 1-5 pm during the spawn.
