Salmon Tours return to Poulsbo

Salmon tours kick off this Saturday at Poulsbo’s Fish Park from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The event celebrates the return of salmon to Kitsap County streams and offers an opportunity for visitors to learn about local salmon populations while hoping to catch a glimpse of them as they swim upstream.

It may be raining, so it is advised to dress appropriately for the weather, this includes appropriate footwear as there is some minor hiking to reach the streams.

Activities will be available for folks of all ages and will include informational booths, arts & crafts, and salmon-viewing in the stream. Experts will be on hand to talk about the various types of salmon in Kitsap, the salmon life cycle and healthy salmon habitats.

Parking is across the street at Nelson Park/ EHL parking lot, walk down the Lindvig Bridge to reach the park.

These events are hosted by Washington State University and the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife.
