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).


Plan Your Trip this Fall

Guests are welcome to visit Tsútswecw Provincial Park during the month of October to witness the spawning salmon in the Adams River. There are many trails to explore in the park, so be sure to spread out and social distance from others.
