Live Salmon Action

I visited the Whitehorse Rapids Fish Ladder today. It's day 9 of the run, and there have been 166 salmon through the ladder so far. Here is a webcam showing the returning salmon swimming around near the entry to the fish ladder.

Are you wondering what in the world I'm talking about? I wrote a whole post explaining the fish ladder a couple of years ago. The webcam, by the way, is placed below the water at the opening to the fish ladder, shown in the third photo on that post.
