Return of the Sockeye Salmon
Record numbers of sockeye salmon have returned to the Northwest this summer and the best place to witness their beauty is in the Okanagan. In a recent national news article from the Idaho State Journal, the sockeye salmon's return to BC was touted as being a record run.
More than 400,000 sockeye salmon are expected to return this year. The beauty and bright colour of the sockeye is not to be missed. As they get ready to lay their eggs in the fall, their bodies turn bright red and their heads green. It is a remarkable example of the beauty of nature.
Your visit to the South Okanagan offers you an excellent vantage point to discover the return of the sockeye salmon. We have teamed up with Okanagan Nation Alliance Fisheries to offer you a South Okanagan Vacation Package complete with a Fishing Excursion.
