From late summer until early winter B.C.’s rivers turn into a viewing place for one of our province’s natural icons: the salmon! Making their way back to their places of birth to spawn, when the spawning runs are at their peak they are a spectacular sight. Even when they’re not, and there might only be, oh, a few hundred salmon swimming around, it’s still a great reason to make your way to the edge of a river to check out this wonder of nature.
I’ve been a salmon hound since the 1980’s when my father took me to see the Sockeye spawning in the Adams River and it blew my freaking mind and set in motion a lifelong obsession. Below you’ll find 8 of my favourite rivers where you can spot all 5 species of Pacific salmon spawning. Make plans!

A growing body of research suggests that when we commit to regular workouts that raise our heart rate and get us moving and sweating for a sustained period of time, magical things happen to our body and brain.
