Kokanee Salmon Festival and a river runs through it. September/ October

Each autumn, from late September through mid-October, one of biology's

clocks sounds an irresistible alarm. Mature kokanee salmon,

transformed from a silver-blue color to a fiery vermilion, twist their

narrowing way upstream from Lake Tahoe to spawn in the gravels of

Taylor Creek, near South Lake Tahoe. The sight of the blazing salmon

draws many spectators, who can observe the fish at close range in

several places. The kokanee's commitment to its nature is compelling.

People tend to stop for a brief look, then become transfixed.





Kokanee Salmon Festival held October 2-3, 2010 by the US Forest

Service just down the street or walking path at the Stream Profile

Chamber. Discover the beauty and history of the Kokanee Salmon

spawning run.

Remember that the days are getting shorter and evenings cooler so bring a torch ( I have Brit friends) and a layer or two. gloves always a good idea...  the kids really have a blast on this one.
