Onlookers teem to the bridge across Issaquah Creek and Issaquah Salmon Hatchery grounds each fall as coho and chinook salmon complete a long journey from the Pacific Ocean.
In order to share information and tales about the salmon species’ life cycle, Friends of the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery needs volunteers to serve as guides. The spawning season stretches from September through November.
FISH, a nonprofit organization, conducts educational tours for school groups and other hatchery visitors on weekdays each autumn, as traffic transforms the quiet hatchery grounds into a bona fide tourist destination.
