I went to the Salute to the Sockeye in 2010 which was a dominant year and the amount of salmon in the river was mind blowing. Now here we are 4 years later and another dominant year is coming up and this is an attraction that will be fantastic but not until in October. Plan a day at Roderick Haig-Brown... More

the sight of millions of salmon having fought their way back upriver from the sea is too amazing for mere words. In the high season run (every four years) the river and creek bottoms are not visible as the sheer number of spawning fish cover them completely. Sockeye Salmon fighting to make this incredible journey so as to continue the... More

An incredible display by Mother Nature. We didn't see a large amount of salmon but the walk through the peaceful, colorful forest at this time of year is incredible. We also saw a number of tiny green and brown frogs on the path which children would really love to see. It is a great family experience, regardless your age.

This is spectacular for all ages. During a full run, you'll never see anything else like it. The salmon run is so thick that you can almost walk across them.

Getting close enough to witness this magnificent natural wonder was so awesome. We took many pictures and then had a wonderful bannock burger served by the native women.

We have been going to the Adams River Salmon run for 22 years . Some years like this past year it is a low salmon run and we just expect this and still love the walk and the park is the best place on Earth. We are so blessed to have nature on our door step.

Every October around Thanksgiving the salmon come back to Adams River. Every fourth year there is a huge run and the sight is something to see. The river runs red with salmon as they struggle to spawn near the mouth. We have walked along the self guided path or climbed down onto the river banks to see the salmon. Once... More
