Lakelse Watershed Society holds annual sockeye salmon walk

A viewing platform is available to the public to watch the annual spawning cycle

The sockeye salmon are now making their return to the Lakelse Lake area.

On Aug. 30, a dozen people attended the Lakelse Watershed Society’s walk to learn about the annual spawning cycle and see a close-up of it happening from the viewing platform.

The platform, constructed by the Lakelse Watershed Society almost a decade ago, is located adjacent to the Williams Creek walking trail by Gruchy’s Beach.

Since 2005, the society has volunteered with other agencies who are part of the Lakelse Salmon Recovery Program in an effort to rebuild sockeye stocks in the Lakelse area.

For those interested in seeing the sockeye salmon, are asked by the society to not reel or disturb the fish.
