Great pictures. My wife, a professional photographer, and I went last weekend to the Adams River. Between us we took over 400 pictures. Although I live in BC for over 10 years I've never seen a salmon run and was in awe.

Samw, very nice!  You have inspired me, if the returns are good next year, I will consider going.  Thanks.

Huntwriter, I am looking at the photos at 8:20am and already there have been 68 views.  It looks like there is a demand to see photos.  If your professional photographer wife would like to share, I certainly would be interest is seeing them.

You see pros shoot pictures like a machine gun shoots bullets. Then they spend hours looking through all of them and only keep the very best, which might be less then 10%, the rest go in the bin. The good pictures are field and sold not shown around on the internet. It's not that they do not want to show the pictures to others its the sad fact that when a pictures surfaces on the internet it becomes absolutely next to useless as a source of revenue.

It was aprox. 3-4 wks ago on the tv news they showed a report of the people watching the spawning salmon at the Adams Riiver.
Even some were there visiting who were from dif. countries.
If I heard right the people that travel there during that time to watch the salmon number over 100.000 or more.

That's ALOT of for sure !

I was just there this weekend. Even though I've heard that the salmon showed up early, there were still an enormous number of them spawning and turning the river red. It was my first time seeing the run, and I was in awe.

Yup that is what it looked like.The trout fly fishing at the mouth was out of this world.I am so looking forward to retiring to my place on the Adams in mere 18 months.
