Underwater Fish Cam: Bonneville Dam

fishcam

If you were watching the fish ladder at Bonneville dam yesterday you would have seen 187 chinook salmon, 2268 steelhead, 41 shad, and 12 lamprey swim through. The US Army Corps of Engineers operates a camera that takes a photograph every 15 to 45 seconds at the massive dam 40 miles upstream from Portland, Oregon. The runs of fish have waned a bit from a month or so ago, but it's still fun to take a peak every once and a while.
