Coho Jumping at Salmon Cascades
Summer coho are now spawning in the Sol Duc River and park fisheries biologists project great salmon-watching opportunities this weekend at Salmon Cascades.
The Sol Duc River summer coho run is earlier that most coho runs on the Olympic Peninsula. They return in late October, while most coho runs on the peninsula return in November and December. Sol Duc summer coho spawn between Sol Duc Falls and Salmon Cascades.
The Salmon Cascades area is closed to all fishing, from 100 yards upstream of the cascades to 250 yards (or as posted) downstream. Park fishing regulations.
