Carkeek Park is a special destination. Down the hill from the main entrance is a wide trail (to the right, North). The trail is mid-way on the the Salmon To Sound Trail. Walk up that trail and you’ll find a lot of salmon.
Right now at Carkeek Park, fish are being fed:
In the main fish pond: ~30,500 fish
In the Salmon in the Schools pond: ~4,000 fish
Already released in March 2019: ~60,000 salmon.
Salmon Imprint Stewards are there 3 times a day (morning, mid-day, and evening), 7 days a week. Watch for the “Help Feed Salmon” sign to know there is a Steward available to help feed the salmon.
CWCAP has already released nearly 30,000 salmon fry from the main fish pond and another nearly 30,000 from the Egg Incubation/Self-release Tank.
There are about 35,000 salmon fry at Carkeek Park right now being fed through Saturday, May 11. You can visit with your family and friends to help feed these fish before they are released into Venema Creek.
Salmon in the Schools fish are from 24 different schools. Public and private schools in this program raised fish from eggs in their schools and brought them to Carkeek Park as salmon fry. They will be cared for and released by CWCAP‘s well regarded Salmon Imprint Stewards.
