During the months of September and October there are two Salmon species of importance in the Birkenhead River, Chinook and Sockeye Salmon. Even though the Chinook Salmon have been present in the river system from mid July, they are just now starting to actively spawn. Their eggs are a highly attractive food source for trout and a easily imitated pattern for the fly fisher.
