This is a great event held every year. It is the perfect way to get kids involved in the outdoors and educational at the same time. The lift is not going to start this year until 10 AM. You register at the dam. Please bring chest waders and a net if you have them, be sure to bring an extra change of clothes just in case you get wet. We lift anywheres from 100 to 220 fish up and over the dam with a net and pulley system. We try to get the kids involved by getting them to net the fish. They then bring the fish over to a holding pen where then samples are taken by a biologist, counted and then lifted to let them carry on their way to the spawning grounds.The event usually takes 3 hours.
Another update will be given on Friday to confirm we are going ahead with the lift.
