Kokanee spawning


They are at it again: the Kokanee are spawning. Depending on the creek, from mid-August until late September the water becomes either spotted or awash with red as these land-locked sockeye salmon move upstream. I hope to get more views as the season progresses.

This is a view looking downstream towards the approaching Kokanee salmon. Their red bodies are reflected on the underside of the suface of the water.

    I think it was a photo of the Kokanee that first drew me to your blog. Great perspective and image!

    Stunning photograph Alistair, do you have to use a snorkel or have you mastered holding your breath?
