Hi folks,

Joe Overlock, MDIFW Fisheries Supervisor, reached out to me today to provide some clarifying comments, after someone alerted him to this thread. Joe provided the following official response:

"Last Friday, a volunteer discovered 12 dead salmon on top of the fish collection box at the Crooked River weir. Based upon initial findings, game wardens feel this could be an intentional act and are actively investigating this incident. The weir has been in place for eight weeks and during that time over 1,700 salmon have passed through the weir. The weir has and will continue to provide MDIFW with valuable information on wild landlocked salmon migrations, growth rates, and the overall health of the Sebago Lake and Crooked River fishery. Anyone with information that might help game wardens are being asked to call Public Safety dispatch at (207) 624-7076 or Maine Operation Game Thief at 1-800-ALERT-US. "

Joe also indicated that there would be a MIDFW Blog post coming out later this week with more information. Finally, anyone who has specific concerns or questions is encouraged to call Jim Pellerin, the biologist in charge of this effort, in the Region A office.

Thanks to Joe for reaching out and setting some of this information clear!

Has anyone heard an update on this investigation?

Interesting that it went away when the Internet buzz died.
