I visited September 8th and was able to see at least 40 fish jump trying to beat the current in about 30 minutes. We watched a native fisherman catch a steelhead with nothing more than a net. It's a beautiful place and interesting as well

Cool spot to stop during your drive through to check out the salmon during the salmon run. You can watch them net good sized salmon. Worth a stop. If you're lucky, you can catch someone there selling fresh salmon!

This is a quiet little place to stop but the gift shop is really good and they even offer free coffee if you wish it.

Moricetown Canyon Fish Ladders is a great place to stop and take a rest. A person can walk down to the ladders and watch the fish jumping.
