Experience: Adams Salmon Run (Kamloops)

This fall, experience the remarkable journey of millions of salmon as they return to the Adams River near Kamloops. While the “Adams Run” takes place every year during the first 3 weeks of October, this marks a dominant year where numbers are record-high.

There’s speculation that 2014 may actually be the largest in nearly 100 years!

The Adams River stretches between Adams Lake and Shuswap Lake, about 40 minutes from Kamloops. Salmon viewing is such an integral part of this area that Haig-Brown Provincial Park features viewing platforms and walking paths created specifically for watching these bright red beauties travel to their spawning grounds.

Don’t miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime chance to watch the river run red. Join the Adams River Salmon Society for their “Salute to the Sockeye” Open House from October 12th to 14th (Thanksgiving weekend) at the Interpretive Cabin in the park. Learn more about salmon, the park, and local tourism attractions, and enjoy activities and refreshments. Proceeds will support the Society’s education and conservation efforts.

Before you go, be sure to check out camping and lodging options from Kamloops to Sorrento in the Thompson Okanagan Region – and remember that there’s no overnighting in Haig-Brown Park:
