Life with Monte: Holyoke Fish Lift

Each Spring New Englanders have the opportunity to view an incredible natural phenomenon. The American Shad and other anadromous fish make their way up the Connecticut River to begin their natural spring migration. In tonight’s “Life with Monte” segment WRSI Radio personality Monte Belmonte heads to the Barrett Fishway at the Holyoke Dam to see how these fish receive a helping hand or more accurately a helping elevator ride over the dam before continuing on their journey up stream.
