Funded in FY2015 through the National Fish Habitat Action Plan
The Town of Surry and partners created a nature-like fishway at a slightly undersized road crossing on Patten Stream. This fishway restored access to 20 stream miles and 1,200 alewife spawning acres. It also enhanced passage for sea-run brook trout and American eels, and is located in Critical Habitat for Atlantic salmon.
