Can you see salmon on Bainbridge? If you are lucky, you might! However, our streams are very small, our returning numbers are correspondingly small, and we don't have many spots where our streams are easily accessible for public viewing. For better chances at seeing returning spawners, there are several larger stream systems in Kitsap County on which you'll have a much better chance of seeing returning fish, including Chico Creek and Cowling Creek.
The weekend of Nov 8/9 there will be several salmon docents out on Kitsap streams giving tours and offering great opportunities for viewing these beautiful returning fish. Check out the Kitsap Sun article for more details on fall Kitsap County salmon viewing opportunities.
