Ignoring the wiki, what non-waterway tags are used for fish_pass in 
OSM?  https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/search?q=fish_pass#values will 
show the usage of the value, but I bet lots of local / different 
language names are also in use.

Indeed, but when I last looked waterway=spillway had enough usage in the 
database for me to render it.  Not saying whether that's "correct" 
tagging or not, but it was in use (at least a bit).
