The Salmon River Hatchery
If you visit the Salmon River, I highly recommend that you take a break from fishing long enough to have a field trip to the hatchery at Altmar. At the right time of year you can see hundreds and hundreds of salmon. Many were born at this very site, released into the river which flows into Lake Ontario. There they spent three years eating and lifting weights, preparing for their return through this awesome fishery and back to the hatchery. A fascinating process, really, and you can read about it here.
