The Adams River sockeye salmon run is shaping up to be the largest in the past 100 years! Already the river is crimson from bank to bank, with large numbers of salmon still to come.
My family and I have been spending lots of time in Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park. The trails are well maintained and allow excellent viewing of the salmon. They are also self guided interpretive trails, containing just about everything you need to know about salmon, their life cycles and the environment.
During the salmon festival (October 2 - 24) the park is a hub of activity. The parking lot area has concession stands, displays from local artisans and a tent run by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans.
People are literally coming from around the world to catch the 2010 salmon run. What is holding you back?
