Webcam watches spawning sockeye swim past in Adams River

Watch the big fish swim

The sockeye are making their annual run into the B.C. Interior, and a webcam has been set up to watch the big-red fish move through the Adams River.

The Adams River Salmon Society is holding its Salute to the Sockeye Festival through Oct. 23 at the Shuswap river where salmon return to spawn each fall.

The society has set up a webcam that is live streaming a section of the waterway.

The festival is held on every dominant year of the salmon run, which occurs every four years.

Artisans, food vendors and interpretive tents are also at Tsútswecw Provincial Park this weekend.

An estimated 670,000 sockeye entered the Columbia River system this summer on a nearly 1,000-kilometre upstream journey toward spawning grounds in creeks and rivers in the B.C. Interior, according to the Okanagan Nation Alliance.
