Bonneville: Lock, Dam, Fish Ladder, Hatchery

A tugboat and barge approach the lock as the bridge swings open.
The barge is fully in the lock and the water rises.
On the other side of the dam, a fish ladder allows fish to move up and downstream around the dam. Sitting in the room is a man in front of a computer who counts the types of fish all day long. Here some Chinook swim past the counting station.
