Herring Run continued


Yesterday visited again the Herring Run at Oliver Mill Park in Middleboro and the fish ladder in downtown Middleboro.  The Herrings are still running and in larger numbers than a month ago.  Anyone in the area should visit either one of the sites to see these fish battling their way upstream against a fast moving current to spawn and create the next generation of herring.  Despite the dreary drizzling weather there were people coming to witness the event.
