Stafff well informed and eager to share knowledge. Although the shinook were not on way to spawning grounds yet we were shown all that goes on when they do,including underwater camera and fish counting technique. If you have time it's a pleasant walk along Yukon River trail to get there

Nowhere else will you be able to see the fish coming through. It is so important to the protection of our wonderful resource in the Yukon. It is very important that this be maintained. So great for kids and adults as well to see the fish so close. Special.

This was worth the visit, especially in August when the salmon were running. Interesting & informative. Allow 1/2 to 1 hour. And it was even free, although donations were accepted.

The volunteering guides are helpful and friendly. There is a window where you can see salmon swimming, besides that the ladder is not really that interesting. The damn and a wild water circuit are close by.

Timing is everything and the salmon weren't running, but we did see some graylings in the ladder. Admission is by donation (they suggest $3). I happened to stop by when a First Nations elder was speaking to visitors about fishing in her village when she was young. Very interesting and a highlight of my trip to the Yukon. (They only...

This is a great little activity to do, to teach you and the kids about the salmon migration. It's very informative and costs only a donation of your choice.

This I believe is the longest fish ladder in the world. Unfortunately the salmon had not started to run, however it was extremely interesting. The salmon were expected in a day or two.

The staff, in particular the manager (Kristie, I think) were extremely knowledgeable and excited to sure their knowledge with the visitors. Super interesting and super fun! Kids loved seeing the fish close up and we are excited to view the fish-cam once it is up and running!

You can easily walk or bike here from downtown Whitehorse, across the river on the footbridge heading up river. The displays are informative and this makes a great free day of exploring the area. The trails are well maintained and marked with freindly locals hiking/biking along tne way. Well worth the journey.
