Title: Cable Pool - Cherryfield

Description:

The USGS monitors the Narraguagus River at Cherryfield, Maine at a location called Cable Pool. This spot was once renowned for Atlantic salmon, where anglers would line the banks, waiting their turn to cast a line into the water. In fact, posts along the river bank to hold the waiting anglers rods exist today. While salmon are still seen here, they are not nearly as plentiful as they once were. A plaque commemorates Cable Pool, though the USGS cableway it was named for has since been removed.
