Salmon spawning season is upon us! Fall Chinook spawning occurs in the Rogue Valley from October- January, with peak viewing times in October and November. Take advantage of the unique opportunity to get outside and observe this natural wonder. See map and descriptions below for suggested viewing locations.

Please view salmon from a distance. Spawning season is a stressful time for fish, and any disturbance can be very harmful. It is best to view from a bridge or creek/river bank, not in the water. Thank you!
