Review of Whitehorse Fishway

It's a great place to go to see the salmon getting a little help to get to the other side! The staff are awesome and very informative. They will talk for hours with you and you can see the actual salmon in the glass moving through the fish ladder. I loved the painted fish that mark the area on the outside - they are perfect for pictures! Overall - a must-see in Whitehorse and a lovely walk through beautiful forest along the river on the way!

Free access with a voluntary donation initiative worth the visit.
If you are interested in Nature and fish and wildlife matters. You have to visit it. Particularly interesting during the salmon run season to see them jumping up the fish ladder.

There is a donation to get in and see the fishway. We were too early for the salmon run but the fish wall made by locals was very interesting.

We were a little early to see the salmon run, but we did see a few little fish that made my granddaughter happy. Seeing the dam and the power of the water going by was awesome. Also the added bonus of the fish art made for a nice visit.

For a small donation, such an interesting attraction. Thinking this is the longest fish ladder in North America?? Hilite would be the July/August salmon run. Can't help but feel a sadness though when you look at the early century photos capturing the salmon run in those times and the meagre run that exists now. Never the less, time well spent
