Chilko Tales

Record Run of Sockey

Record Run of Sockeye Salmon

This was an amazing year for the Chilko River and Chilko Lake Sockeye Salmon run.  I feel honored that I was able to witness this run. There were 2.3 million sockeye that returned home to the Chilko River to spawn this fall.  It was stunning. The river was a mass of sockeye salmon. I felt very privileged to be able to witness this, as it has never happened in my lifetime and probably won’t again. The river was stuffed with sockeye; every ledge was a solid line of red swimming salmon. Truly, I wish that everyone who I know that loves the Chilko could have seen this.  Since many of you did not, I captured some of it on camera.. check out the photogallery for 2010 season photos…
