Kokanee Festival

Saturday, August 30 to Saturday, August 30, 12:00 AM
Kokanee Festival
Fun, Fun, Fun! Come learn about Kokanee, the Landlocked Salmon in Wallowa Lake. The Kokanee are usually spawning and running the Wallowa River this time of year. You may get to see several Kokanee going home to complete their life cycle. What a great opportunity to learn about the "Redd" in the river. There will be presentations throughout the day, local businesses and community booths talking about Kokanee and their effect on the surrounding watershed and the Wallowa County people. There will be activities for kids, food, and scavenger hunt with prizes sponsored by the Wallowa Lake businesses, live music by local musicians and a picture board for photo opportunities. Blue Mountain Wildlife will bring their birds of prey. Come look at and learn about these magnificent birds. Remember everyone should stay out of the river due to sensitivity of the spawning kokanee. Wallowa Lake broke 4 records in 2010 for the largest kokanee caught.
