Today I discovered the Thornbury Fishway, a modern fish ladder built into the dam on the Beaver River at Thornbury to help the Rainbow Trout and Chinook Salmon migrate up the river to spawn. I've been past this place on the highway bridge perhaps 100 times, but never stopped to look, not realizing I was driving right over top of such an interesting place - it's right under the highway bridge just east of the traffic light!
And it's all open to view for anyone visiting. In fact, the town has gone to a lot of trouble to make this an interesting place to visit. No fish today, but hopefully I can return in the coming weeks and bring you some pictures of migrating salmon!
