Fall Salmon Run

Every fall from September to October millions of Sockeye Salmon make their final journey upstream to the Adams River to lay their eggs, just 40 minutes east of Kamloops. Spectators can marvel at the natural wonder, thanks to viewing platforms on site at the Tsútswecw Provincial Park (Roderick Haig-Brown).


Salute to the Sockeye

Every fourth year is a “dominant” salmon run, with millions of fish to be seen. The Adams River Salmon Society coordinates the celebration known as the “Salute to the Sockeye” during the dominant years.
