Walk over the bridge spanning the Beaver River, on Highway #26 and have a look at the interesting fish ladder, which aids fish to return to their original spawning grounds up-river to start a new cycle of regeneration. In the Spring, watch for Rainbow Trout making their way up the Fishway. Adults enter the streams in early spring to spawn in clean, rapid water (April). From late August to late October, adult spawning Chinook Salmon provide exciting viewing as they migrate up stream and make their way up the Fishway to find suitable areas in gravel river beds. Meander along the trail to the beautiful Thornbury Harbour and take a moment to enjoy one of the loveliest harbours on the Bay.
