View salmon at Lake Redding’s fish ladder

Redding has a fish ladder at the dam for Lake Redding that serves to divert water to the Anderson Cottonwood Irrigation canal. It allows salmon and other species get upstream when the dam is up. At the ladder are a few windows into their watery world.

Of course viewing fish is like any kind of fishing expedition. Sometimes you get skunked.

You know what they say about the worst day fishing being better than the best day working.
Visual fishing. It’s ReallyRedding.

    Went to see fish but windows were covered with algae so no way to see through to the river! Doesn’t anyone maintain this facility?!
