Can you tell us what you use the Salmon Watcher maps for?  We'd really like to know.

Fish Distribution and Salmon Watcher Site Maps

The Salmon Watcher Program has been going strong since 1996! From this web page you can access maps from the 1996 and 1997 spawning seasons. The maps are constructed from the data collected by Salmon Watcher volunteers surveying in the Lake Washington, Lake Sammamish, and Cedar River Basins.

We would like to hear from you!

We are always curious how our data are being used. If you are using the Salmon Watcher data for anything beyond satisfying your own curiosity, please drop us a line and let us know how you're using it. Please email Jennifer Vanderhoof, Ecologist and Technical Lead for the Salmon Watcher Program with your uses for the data.

Choose which season's maps you wish to view (generally published spring of the following year):

This program is conducted in cooperation with the King County Water and Land Resources Division, Bellevue Stream Team, Redmond Stream Team, and the cities of Seattle, Bothell, Kirkland, Renton, Woodinville, and the Vashon-Maury Island Land Trust, with financial support from the King County Flood Control District Cooperative Watershed Management Grant.
