Excerpt from Report of the Commissioner for the Year Ending June 30, 1900, Vol. 26

The stocking of suitable streams with the various species Of trout has been continued, special attention being paid to the distribution Of brook trout, rainbow trout, and black-spotted trout. In New England the extent of the work with landlocked salmon and trout was impaired by the severe drought which prevailed throughout that section during the fall of 1899. In Vermont and New Hampshire large numbers Of fish were lost by the drying up of streams which had heretofore never been affected in this manner, and in Maine the water in many Of the large lakes became so low that the trout and the landlocked salmon were not able to ascend the streams to spawn, which, of course, resulted in a material reduction Of the number of eggs collected.

An investigation during the fall of 1899 Shows that a large number of Atlantic salmon passed over the falls at Bangor and reached the spawning-grounds at the headwaters Of the Penobscot, and from what was learned it is believed that an auxiliary station for the collection of eggs of this species on the natural spawning-grounds Of this fish may be profitably established and the supply Obtained to better advantage than by the methods now followed.
