The annual salmon spawner run on Stoney Creek, Burnaby, is in full swing. Thousands of Chum and Coho return annually. Be sure to check it out! There has been rumours that this year we have an unusually early siting of the Coho, which generally arrive in November. The volunteers counted 6 coho during the weekend spawner count Oct. 18, 2014.

October 10, 2012 update:

Chum Spawner Season Starts in Stoney Creek. Les has reported 10 Chum. 8 by the location where Stoney Creek meets Brunette River.

How exciting! Please do not disturb the Chum. You can view the fish from the Shore but be careful not to disturb the stability of the creek edges. Please keep to the trail. These fish are not for human consumption.
A good access to Stoney Creek in the lower stretches, where fish are presently navigating, is from the Burnaby Mountain Urban Trail, Government Road, Burnaby.
