12-03-2022 Salmon Survey Update

Another snowy survey day down at the park. Thank you surveyors for once again braving the elements. It’s been a long season and we likely have just a few more surveys remaining. The live counts have plummeted with less than a hundred salmon remaining in the park. Take a look at the map below for the best places to spot fish.

11-29-2022 Salmon Survey Update

Tuesday was a chilly and snowy survey. Thanks volunteers for braving the elements! The number of carcasses has overtaken the number of live fish but we continue to see more live fish than usual for this time of year. We expect the live numbers to really drop off in the next week or two so get down to the park if you haven’t seen them already.
