Salmon run

View the Salmon Run

Chinook “King” salmon have been seen in the Sammamish River! Enjoy good views from the south side of the trestle on the Redmond Connector Trail, and at the Marymoor Pedestrian Bridge. Note that salmon are usually more active in the mornings and that polarized sunglasses help take the glare off the water.
