On one of our trips into Roseburg we stopped to see the fish viewing area.
I wasn't sure what to expect, but this was pretty cool.
They have build a series of fish ladders with small pools for them to rest in before attempting the next jump as they make their way upstream to spawn. There are windows in an underground viewing area, but with the condensation on the windows, the photos didn't look like much...so I'll spare you those.
This time of year it's primarily the Chinook salmon making the journey. We met this guy hanging out in the large pool waiting for the last big leap.
We hung around for a while to see what he'd do, but fish viewing is a lot like watching laundry spin and after a while we gave up and left him to his own devices.
Long Live the Fisher Queen
