River Updates



We now have a camera on RiverQuest. See below for the latest "View from the Wheelhouse"

Don't forget! Connecticut River Shad is running right now! Check your local fish market for some. In Haddam, River Valley Provisions, just up the hill from RiverQuest sells it...and the Shad Roe, also. Yum. Yum.

On the river, the Ospreys are busy. Some are nesting already, some working hard on their "nestorations". A lot got done during one week! The Bridge Osprey laid their first egg, this on April 24. Yay! All appears to be well at the Goodpseed Bald Eagle nest and we believe the Hamburg Cove nest is still viable. It appears a lot of our river wildlife is nesting now! Not much out there for birds, no ducks, not even very many Cormorants. The spring foliage is beautiful though, the leaves are starting to POP out, boats are starting to appear on the river and soon, summer will be here! 


Live view from the Wheelhouse while we are at dock this weekend.
