APPLICATIONS FOR SALUTE TO THE SOCKEYE 2014
THE ADAMS RIVER SALMON SOCIETY INVITES THE WORLD !
When you are planning your trip to see the Adams River Sockeye Salmon spawn keep in mind the following patterns:
Dominant years (2014, 2018) you may see millions of sockeye return to spawn in October. The Society hosts the Salute to the Sockeye celebration the first 3 weeks of the month – Friday, October 3rd to Sunday October 26th, 2014. During this time frame a nominal admission fee will be charged. More information is available on the Salute 2014 page of this site.
Sub-dominant years (2015) you may see 100,000+ sockeye return to spawn in October.
Post-subdominant years (2016) you may see 100′s of sockeye return to spawn in October (smallest returns).
Pre-dominant years (2017) you may see 10,000+ sockeye return to spawn in October, generally the first three weeks.
A few Pink salmon spawn in the Adams River in September on odd years only; Chinook salmon spawn here in Sept/October; Sockeye salmon spawn in the Adams River in the first few weeks of October, followed by Coho salmon in late October and early November:
Find us at Roderick Haig-Brown Park (2300 Squilax-Anglemont Rd, Lee Creek, BC), in the Log Cabin Interpretive Centre open to the public, seasonally (June to October). NOTE: 2014 season from approximately late August or early September to the end of October (due to construction).
The Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park is open year-round. BC Parks is currently undertaking a facility improvement project within the Park. Therefore the day-use area and main parking lot adjacent to the entrance at the intersection with Eva Road is CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. The most eastern Park road is unaffected and is still open for public use as well as the Raft Pullout parking area.
