Greeneville Dam Fishing Area, Norwich
Greeneville Dam Fishing Area, Norwich
This site provides fishing and car-top boating access to the Shetucket River at the site of Norwich Public Utilities hydroelectric dam and fish ladder. The canoe/kayak put-in is a 200 yard portage from the parking area. Norwich Public Utilities offers tours of its Greeneville Dam fish lift at a site on the opposite bank of the River from this site from May 1st through June 30th. To learn more about the fish lift, go to the Norwich Public Utilities web site and follow the links. Be extremely careful near the dam. Fatalities have occurred as a result of those who enter the River who underestimated the power of the currents near the dam. Combined sewer overflow discharges along this segment of the Shetucket River may discharge untreated sewage after rainstorms. Avoid direct contact with river water within 24-hours of rainstorms. To help you reach Greeneville Dam Fishing Area, some routes leading to this site are posted with the brown and white Long Island Sound Access sign.
