Fall Salmon Run

( Nature’s Beauty / Animals & Wildlife )

A Karen Brown Recommendation
Leechtown, British Colimbia, Canada

If you are fortunate that your trip happens in the late fall (late October to early December), I would encourage you to follow the path of the Sooke River to witness the Salmon Run. The river runs thick with the struggling fish, determined to complete their journey. Incredibly, the Chinook (or King), Coho (or Silver), Chum (or Silver Brite), Sockeye (or Red) and Pink salmon all return, to the exact place where they spawned, to die; and, although all in the same general area, the locations are very specific. Each species is distinctive in its coloring, so visually it is easy to determine the different birthing areas. There is no dramatic staging in terms of where to go . . . just follow the river and you will notice a few key places where you can pull off, park, and there will be Park billboards explaining the migration. Better yet, just ask the locals for directions to the best spots for viewing. The wonder of nature continues when you witness soaring bald eagles and splashing, killer whales in the bay waters—both taking advantage of easy prey. If you are brave enough to stay into the early evening, you might find yourself in the company of bears who wander down to the river’s edge for a bite to eat. A memorable experience.
