Yorkson creek salmon are back!

Yorkson Creek was visited by underwater photographer Fernando Lessa, who got some great shots of spawning coho. (fernandolessa.ca)


Volunteers are surveying the creek regularly from mid-October to end of December to count returning spawning coho and chum. So far, in 2018, 27 fish have been seen. Our Yorkson creek has a small but very determined group of fish, just like its stewardship group! The majority of the spawners were seen south of Hwy 1 this year, which is new. However, we must remain ever-vigilant as the community develops around our creek. Road work, development projects, pollution from local business and citizens are a constant threat.

Please consider joining our group as a volunteer, there are many opportunities to help salmon!
