Hi Annie and tmtibimate. This is the largest sockeye salmon run in 100 years. It's pretty exciting to see.

Well worth the trip Nawitka, they'll be running right through October.

This is great Laurel, I know that one that's finning, he swam by me at Tow Hill a couple months ago. And he jumped in front of Nawitka not long after that.

Nice capture. I never know when it is happening. I have to visit soon Humber River, I know the salmon goes upstream there.
