Salmon viewing at Oxbow Regional Park in Gresham

On October 23rd, Patrick and I visited Oxbow Regional Park in Gresham, east of Portland, to see spawning salmon in the Sandy River (pics). Metro naturalists and volunteers were on hand to at the river’s edge to help find salmon and educate visitors about their behavior and life cycle. In pictures of the water’s surfaces, the small splashes are male salmon moving about. I did not get any pictures of live salmon up close, but you can check out Laura’s blog for a few.
