Cutters Tackle Kennebec River 

(WABI) – The Thunder Bay, Shackle, Bridle and Tackle will start in Bath on Monday…they’ll work as far north as the Richmond-Dresden bridge, then move on toward Gardiner.

Officials are hoping the ice breaking will provide some flood relief.

Fishermen and snowmobilers are being warned to stay off the Kennebec between Bath and Richmond next week since the ice in those areas will be dangerous as the cutters move the ice floes downriver and out to sea.
