Whitehorse Fishway

The Whitehorse Rapids Fishway is one of the most popular tourist stops in town, and with good reason. Each year more than a thousand salmon pass through the fish ladder, migrating past Whitehorse Hydro Dam en route to their spawning ground. At 1,200 ft (366 m), it’s the longest fish ladder in the world. Large viewing windows allow you to watch a variety of Yukon fish in their natural habitat including arctic grayling, whitefish, lake trout and longnose sucker. The salmon begin running upstream to spawn in early August. 

Inside, you’ll find helpful displays filled with educational information. On the outside, amidst the powerful waves of the spillway, there’s more information about the species of fish and traditional First Nation fishing methods.

Practical Info

The fishway is easily accessed from the Yukon River pedestrian trail. Admission is a suggested donation of $3, or for $10 you can purchase a season’s pass. The fish ladder usually runs from late June to early September.
