The drive to the viewing stands from the finger of land where we leave the skiff takes fifteen minutes through the treed hillside along the river. The posting on January 1, 2014 shows a google map of the river and the location of the spawning channel with the viewing stands. The photo in this posting shows the number of the salmon in the natural river on one side of the stands on the other side of the stands at the entrance to the wier and spawing beds the salmon are even more abundant. The Department of Fisheries closes the entranc to the spawning channel once 80,000 pink salmon have entered the remaining (400,000 or more on a good year) salmon spawn in the natural river.
