Kitsap Salmon Tours Clear Creek Trail Ridgetop Pavilion

Every November when it’s time for the salmon to spawn, several sites in Kitsap have a salmon viewing day in area parks, hosted by WSU. It’s advised to bring polarized sunglasses, if possible, to get a better look.
More information about salmon viewing at Clear Creek Trail, according the organizers:
Since the Clear Creek Task Force built their first trail in 1994, their mission was to preserve the creek and educate the community about healthy salmon habitat. With the Bucklin Hill Bridge 240 ft. span replacing two 72” culverts, salmon no longer have to wait for high tide to swim upstream to spawn.
Activities at the Ridgetop picnic pavilion include storytime with Silverdale Librarian Aleah Jurnecki, citizen scientists can talk with experts on macroinvertebrate identification and learn about the results of the five- year water quality monitoring of Clear Creek. Salmon Docents are on hand to share information on the various types of salmon in Kitsap, the salmon life cycle, and healthy fish habitat.
Of course, it’s possible to go see the salmon on other days this time of year as well.
