incredibly cool. thanks.

Great stuff

Is this in a fishway or open water near the plant?

Glad you guys liked the salmon cam, as I understand it Lake Superior State University releases about 40,000 atlantic salmon at this site every year and they return to that area as do many other salmonids due to the proximity of the
St Marys river rapids. A phenominal fishery in its self. Ofcourse these atlantic salmon donot go to the atlantic they use the great lakes as their ocean. Steelhead fishing there in spring 2000 I saw a guy land an atlantic that was approx 3 feet long, so not going to the ocean doen't slow their growth. The fish cam link had circulated earlier this fall on the Salmon List. I'm not sure as to the exact location of this cam.
