Super spawner patrol on Byrne Creek in SE Burnaby, BC, today. A total of 17 spawners seen. Great to see chum moving upstream into the lower ravine!

This, and below, chum salmon
NOTE: It’s illegal to interfere with spawning salmon. Streamkeepers have training and permission to monitor returning salmon, and assess them for species, sex, size, and spawning status after they die.
