Follow the winding paths at Tsútswecw Provincial Park (formerly known as Roderick Haig Brown) that are surrounded forest leading to the Adams River where you witness the end of the arduous journey of the Sockeye Salmon. The fish can be seen from the “viewing platform” or from many other places along the river. Walk down to where the fish enter the Adams River at Shuswap lake to see the “waiting” fish grouped together. You can even scuba dive with them (escorted, of course). DO NOT walk in the water as you may kill already laid eggs and destroy the stream bed. A must see to witness how these fish contribute to our Earth and all of its inhabitants. There are educational opportunities and vendors (food & artists) on sight as well. This run is best seen in October. There is an earlier run at Scotch Creek in September. This one has no formal viewing and vendors. Access is not that great. If you do go to this less crowded show please remember to park off the road and stay out of the water.

Its a nice hike, keep your dog on the leash! Some people came to soon and saw nothing others came to late and saw and smelt the dead so it's important to hit it perfectly and that depends on the water temperature and weather conditions, Smoke sure check there web site for updates.

This place has it all. The parking is $5 so make sure you have cash on hand. The salmon run is an amazing event. There are several hiking trails as well. There are information booths, and food trucks. There was also an Atm machine on site as well.

Always a fun time. Nice walking paths & look outs. Plenty of places to rest along the way. Always an amazing amount of Salmon to admire during spawning season.
