King Salmon Spawning Watch at Rogue River Preserve

  • Rogue River Preserve 60 Rogue River Dr Eagle Point, OR, 97524 United States (map)

Randy Frick, retired USFS Fish Biologist, will host this ½ mile walk on level terrain to a spot where a number of Chinook salmon are seen spawning in the fall. There will be other wildlife sightings during the walk and along the river. Bring appropriate gear suitable for the weather. If you have them, polarized glasses are useful for better observation through the glare of the water. We'll have some extra glasses to share.

Southern Oregon Land Conservancy has an option to buy this valley-floor property for conservation. For more information on this initiative go to Conserve the Heart of the Rogue.

The salmon walk will start at 9:00 am. Meeting location is at the Preserve. Directions will be emailed upon registration. Tour is restricted to 12 people. For more info or help with registration call 541.482.3069 or email

Folks on the waiting list often get invited to the hike, so please add your name if the hike is full.
