Rockland Harbormaster's Office

Harbormaster: White water rafting permits for Frenches Stream can be purchased through the harbormaster only. Season runs from Nov. 1, 2011 thru April 1, 2012.

The Dam outfall.

An ¬†indepth ¬†inspection of Frenches Stream from the dam at Reed’s Pond to the dam at Forge Pond in Hanover has been completed by the harbormaster’s office. The main channel remains free of debris;¬† however, underwater obstacles can be a concern along the lower stretches near the Hanover border. Fine fall foliage is at peak along the stream all the way to the North River and the coast.

Residents are reminded that deer hunting is allowed in areas of Rockland. The season starts the Monday after Thanksgiving and runs for two weeks.

Goose Island is ablaze with color!

My friends and neighbors, get outside and enjoy the town in full Autumn color.

Hiking trails abound in Rockland and the surrounding towns. Take the wife, the kids, the dog, a friend and breathe the cool Autumn air as you travel along your way.

It's over Elmer Falls and you have reached Forge pond.
