The 2016 Fall Fish Fest, also known as Kokanee Salmon Festival, will be in South Lake Tahoe Saturday, October 1st and Sunday, October 2nd from 10:00am to 4:00pm each day. Gather your family and watch the Kokanee salmon spawn in Taylor Creek. The U.S. Forest Service Visitor Center at Taylor Creek will be hosting the events of the weekend including organized runs, children’s activities, and guided hikes through the forest that lead you to the spawning salmon.
Get educated: the Forest Service biologists will lead visitors on a 1/2 mile Rainbow trail loop to explain the natural wonders of Kokanee salmon.
Get active: there will be a 1/2 marathon, a 5k/10k (walkers welcome), and a “Tadpole Trot” on Sunday, October 2nd beginning at 7:00am. Registration begins at 6:00am on race day, or it can begin right now if you click here.
Get excited: there will be plenty of activities appropriate for the littlest fish-lover of the family. There will be a treasure hunt, the Bumble Bee Ice Cream truck, a giant inflatable fish, and rumor has it Smokey the Bear will even be making an appearance!
Since the Fall Fish Festival is fun for the whole family, why not stay in our Family Favorite home? There’s room for up to 10, a kids’ room with a twin bunks and a full bed, a game room, and a hot tub to relax in after a day of salmon spawning activities.
