During the summer of 1938 the tagging party at Hell’s Gate verified the pattern of difficult water levels there, and showed that some sockeye were permanently blocked and retreated to unsuitable tributaries downriver. This and similar work was continued in subsequent years, with the result that the commission built fishways at Hell’s Gate in 1945 – 1946, which eased the passage of salmon there.
