The normally quiet waters of the 12 km river turn turbulent & crimson as over 2 million sockeye salmon - returning from a journey that takes them far out into the ocean - pour into their home waters to spawn & to die. Their arrival is welcomed by the "Salute to the Sockeye" a pageant which draws visitors to the Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park, a section of the river dedicated to the famous British Columbia fly fisherman, naturalist & author.
