The Salmon Tour
The fall is a busy and wondrous time as migratory species prepare for their long and challenging journey ahead to their destinations. Some species take flight and others swim upstream to spawn. The Salmon "jump" (otherwise known as 'the salmon run' or Salmon migration) from mid-September to mid-October in Owen Sound! Visit our City and experience the natural phenomena on foot, by bike, car, or paddle your way through the self-guided tour.
The actual timing of when salmon migrate is largely dependent on weather, including rainfall and temperature. The question of ‘When?' is largely up to the salmon, so cross your fingers and toes that they choose to be active in migration during your visit. Typically mid-September to mid-October is when this occurs.
It's an experience you will not soon forget!
