Long Description:
EN: Between Olten and Winznau, much of the water of the Aare is directed into a canal for the power plant Gösgen. The dam, which separates the old part of the Aare, is bypassed on the east side by a fish ladder. The fish ladder is approximately 180 meters long and runs along a walkway. The canal and the barrage were built between 1913 and 1917. The fish ladder is only a few years old, I could not find any details.

DE: Zwischen Olten und Winznau wird ein grosser Teil der Aare in einen Kanal zum Kraftwerk Gösgen geleitet. Das Stauwehr, das den alten Teil der Aare abtrennt, wird an der Ostseite von einer Fischtreppe umgangen. Die Fischtreppe ist rund 180 Meter lang und führt einem Spazierweg entlang. Der Kanal und das Wehr wurden zwischen 1913 und 1917 erbaut. Die Fischtreppe ist erst wenige Jahre alt, genaue Daten konnte ich nicht finden.
River/Waterway: Aare
