The Adams River Salmon Run and Salute to the Sockeye Celebration
THE ADAMS RIVER SALMON RUN AND SALUTE TO THE SOCKEYE CELEBRATION
The Adams River has one of the largest Sockeye salmon runs in North America. Every fourth year is a “dominant” salmon run, with millions of fish to be seen from late September through to the end of October (2018 was a dominant run, 2022 will be the next dominant run)
The Adams River Salmon Society coordinate the celebration known as the “Salute to the Sockeye” during the dominant years. Visitors can still access the area on non dominant years to visit the interpretive cabin, take part in a guided walkabout tour, or simply head out on a trail on their own to a riverside viewing platform to observe the Sockeye.
HOW TO SEE THE SOCKEYE SALMON:
Visit Tsútswecw Provincial Park (formerly Roderick Haig-Brown Park), anytime from late September to late October, and you’ll find trails that lead to riverside viewing platforms with interpretive signage that provides information on Sockeye Salmon and the salmon run and spawning process.
Park Hours: Open everyday from 9AM – 4PM
