This gives an interesting insight in the life cycle of the Salmon. During spawning season, you can see a lot of Salmon in their tank - probably the best time to visit (October)

Excellent facility to learn and appreciate the life cycle of salmon.
Fall offers spawning channels and large viewing tanks. Large sign boards explain the process, short walk down to the river and see the salmon coming to the end of their journey.

It was fun to walk around the Hatchery and learn about what they do there. We got to see plenty of fish in the tanks.

Never seen salmons return from the ocean. Super quiet, no one else was here. A small viewing area for dying salmons, and a cool spot to watch the others try jumping up the river. Neat!

Who doesn't love tubing and what a place to do it! It's so incredibly beautiful and the river was at a really nice speed. It has a few fast points which gives everyone that extra thrill.
The river has also a couple of nice spots to go for a swim and sit down for a while.
A must do and see!
