Goldstream has a world-class salmon spawning stream with thousands of Chum Salmon returning each year.  Every autumn, million of Pacific salmon forge their way up the myriad streams of the Pacific northwest to spawn and die. In Goldstream, salmon appear about mid-October, and may be seen for about nine weeks, the dates varying from year to year. Of the five kinds of North American Pacific salmon it is the Chum salmon that is most abundant in this river, though you may also see some Coho and Chinook salmon, as well as the Steelhead and the Cutthroat trout.
