The majesty of nature plays itself out here every year during the Salmon Run at Adams River. The run has been modernized and is more about money for parking and controlled areas than it was in the past. But still a worthy stop to see those beautiful fish fighting with their last bit of energy to spawn and start the... More

Though 7 months have gone by , I thought I would write about what an awesome event The Adams River Sslmon Run is. If you are thinking about going look up all you can and get directions on how to get there. It's worth the drive and worth the walk. It's best to leave early enough to get a great... More

this is not to be missed, the sight of countless salmon fighting upstream to span is something you have to see in person to appreciate .

This Salmon viewing trip is to be considered one of the most outstanding, educational and awe-inspiring 'things to do' in the area. The Adams Lake viewing is the best I have been to, and we have managed to view the salmon runs in other areas, over the years. We don't always catch them but when we do, we always plan... More

This was very impressive to visit, even as a local I appreciated the organization of the attraction. They have built a new viewing deck, very well put together and a great photo perch. I hope they have raised enough to include even more additions to this attraction, would be great to develop the entire trail system to prevent people from... More

We had hoped to arrive at peak spawning time. The 5th of October was a bit early this year. We did see lots of Salmon and the experience was still enjoyable. As expected there were lots of people. A small group of Asian tourists decided they wanted a fish and proceeded to get into the river and haul one out.... More

Unforgettable. Spectacular. Dramatic. Educational. The Adams River sockeye salmon run is well worth a detour or even a special trip. This is a great excursion for all ages. You can clearly see the big scarlet fish with green heads up close, as the water is low and clear. You’ll get great pictures, especially if it’s sunny. The sockeye return every... More

Mother Nature at her finest. Well worth the drive from Vancouer for an overnight trip. Spent the night in Kamloops, visited Adams River the next morning and back in Vancouver in time for a late supper. The site is well organized with lots of friendly, helpful volunteers. Also, numerous porta potties, food booths, souvenir shops and explanatory signs are all... More

That is an ad run overseas, touting a Canadian tea. The rest of the world would love to have natural occurrences like the Salmon Run on the Adam's river. Naturally the Adam's river is much longer than the few hundred yards that one can easily access. I went with my son and two young grandchildren. They will not forget the... More
