When adult salmon feel the urge to spawn, they know it is time to come home. Some must swim as much as 900 miles to reach their spawning sites. They travel upstream from the ocean back to their place of first hatching. This requires traveling against the currents, jumping over waterfalls, traversing shallow streams, and continuing even when they are exhausted from their long journey and lack of food.
Join us as we go and tour Issaquah Salmon Hatchery and see these magnificent fish return from their grueling journey at sea, to fight against the current and spawn in Issaquah Creek.
