Watch Salmon Make Their Way Up The River At Oregon’s Winchester Fish Ladder
If you love to fish in Oregon’s rivers and lakes, then you undoubtedly know the pain that comes from a fishing trip where you don’t see a single fish. On those days, you might be convinced that the fish are just gone! A trip to the Winchester Fish Ladder might make you feel better, as you get an up-close look at fish making their way upstream.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
You can visit the Winchester Dam Fish Count page on the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s website to see past fish counts. Have you ever stopped at this viewing point to see the fish swimming upstream? We’d love to hear about your trip!
