The fishlift gives fish an elevator ride so they can get past Holyoke’s municipally-owned hydroelectric dam on their way upstream to spawn.
You can see how the fish might have a problem without the lift.
Near the top of the lift is a viewing room where you can watch the fish continue on their way. We saw lots and lots of shad…
And sometimes a sea lamprey zipped by!
We listened to “Fish” by Mr. Scruff as we drove away to further adventures.
