  1. This is a very bad idea for Sheepscot Pond, a thriving lake off Rte 3 in Palermo. This new legislation pemise was tried before in 1960s/1970s and ruined the lake for sport fishing. The pond outlet dam fishway was then closed and subsequently Sheepscot made a vibrant comeback to become the pristine unique body of water that it is today with a healthy Maine fish rearing station. More review is needed prior to passing another law that has no benefit to to the pond resources. Harry Webster/Sheepscot camp owner since 1963.
