*THE YEAR OF THE CHINOOK: even though very few sockeye have returned this year (only 150 returned to spawn in 2008; their eggs being the brood stock for this year's run) we have had a banner year of chinook (spring) salmon spawning in an area of the Adams River channel that runs all along the main trail about a 5 minute walk upriver of the main parking area, near the Roderick Haig-Brown memorial rock/plaque site, those these are beginning to die off, having spawned and are becoming fewer and farther between (Oct 19).
*This year, which is the year following the sub-dominant year, has traditionally, in the historic era, been a smaller run (thousands, and recently even hundreds). See details in the Learn More section at the Adams River Escapements link (escapement is a DFO term...these numbers relate to the numbers of returning sockeye to the Adams River).
*The dominant sockeye run (Oct 2014), the sub-dominant run (2015) and next year's run (2013) are all expected to be strong and within the expected parameters for their year within the cycle (2013: 10's of thousands; 2014: millions; 2015: hundreds of thousands).
