your needs power what we do


The Whitehorse Rapids Fishway is closed for the season and the underwater fish camera has been removed until next spring. The fishladder will open again in June 2017.  When the fish-cam is operating, it provides a rare opportunity to see a variety of species of Yukon fish, including arctic grayling, whitefish, lake trout, longnose sucker, and - in late July and throughout August - Chinook salmon.

2016 Chinook salmon count:

Total number of salmon through the ladder: 1556
Number of wild males: 742
Number of wild females: 164
Number of hatchery males: 531
Number of hatchery females: 119

Here is a short video we took of the salmon travelling through the ladder during the 2013 migration.
