Always an interesting place to visit. The Visitors Center on the Oregon side is my favorite, its huge, really more of a museum than a simple visitors center. The rangers and volunteer staff are always friendly and helpful.
Be sure to head to the basement to check out the viewing windows at the fish ladders. Salmon run in both spring and summer- but even when they arent going through theres always sommething interesting.
In the spring keep your eyes open for California Sea Lions, a menace to the salmon but still kinda appealing.
