“NO FISH”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

They told us they only get fish in the late summer. They handle about 2000 fish per season.

Makes for a short interesting visit.

“The fish ladder was closed the week we arrived.”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

We was amazed at the power the dam has to generate that much water and shoot it up in the air like a hugh wave. We took amazing pictures as well as the closed fish ladder and the sand/silt bank that was by the dam.

“Whitehorse”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

Thrilling. So much power generated by the Yukon River. Sad to say we missed the salmon by a couple of days as an ice jam delayed the salmon a couple of weeks. The fish way is still well worth the visit

“Interesting and educational”
Reviewed 14 August 2013 via mobile

We visited here as part of a 5km marked trail walk out of town and along the Yukon. The Fishway is well laid out and easily accessible, and we saw several very large salmon who'd made their way up the steps. Great viewing platform out over the river. Whilst we were there there was an exhibit of fishes modelled by local schoolchildren on the walkway to the platform, excellent!
