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...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...More

It's worth the driving of 8 hours from Alberta to Kamloops to see the salmon run. The organizer of the even was well planned and organized. We will definitely be back next time.

Every four years, a major salmon run happens in the fall at what's called Roderick Haig Brown Provincial Park. It's one of those natural phenomenons that defies description. We stayed in Salmon Arm, had good food at Home Restaurant and some great coffee and treats...More

My first experience has made me a fan. I had heard about Salmon spawning all of my life, but had never seen it. Even books do not do the process justice. Bright red salmon with normal colored heads, swimming side by side against the current...More

A little out of the way unless you are specifically heading for this event. Many Parks and environment personnel on-site to teach about salmon spawning and to answer a multitude of questions. There was a small charge for the experience which was collected to support...More
