    A crowd gathers Thursday at a fishway installed in 2020 adjacent to Olde Mill Place in Vassalboro. The event, hosted by the Yarmouth-based organization Maine Rivers, marked the completion of a years-long project to clear the migratory path of alewives that allows the fish to continue up China Lake Outlet Stream and onto China Lake. Alewives can now return to the lake this year for the first time in some 230 years. A series of dams had long blocked the alewives' migration.
