Adams River

Observe and photograph one of the world's largest returns of spawning sockeye salmon to their natal stream and the home stretch of one of North America's truly spectacular wildlife migrations. Trips are best done in the fall when you will see wild sockeye salmon with their vivid red and green spawning colors, swimming upstream amid fall colors, mushrooms, and other wildlife.

on the trail

Plan short to moderate length hikes along scenic Adams River and cascading side streams in Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park near Chase, British Columbia, Canada.

Plan hikes to Shuswap Lake and the river mouth where masses of salmon move into the river, along spawning channels and mid-stream, river canyon narrows and small creeks amid a few scavenging wildlife—gulls, dippers, bears, etc.

Underwater photo opportunities also may be available.

  • NEXUS cards can save a lot of time but only work if everyone in the car has one.
  • Make sure your vehicle insurance is valid for Canada.
  • Make sure your health insurance is valid for Canada.
  • Border crossing regulations are strict in both directions. Know what you’re allowed to take and declare everything to avoid problems.
  • You may be able to save time by checking alternate border crossings. Find apps that show updated times and other good tips.
