Clean City Rivers Spark an Urban Fishing Phenomenon:

Across Europe, fish are returning to city waterways thanks to major cleanup efforts in recent decades. And with them, a rare species of recreationist: the urban angler.

It’d be cool to see people fishing in the middle of a city, although I don’t know if I’d eat the fish.

The Petitcodiac River causeway recently opened up its dam with the hope of restoring fish migrations. Moncton used to be a hub for boat building, but the causeway reduced the river’s flow dramatically.
