Bowen Island Fish and Wildlife Club

The Hatchery is 100% volunteer run by the Bowen Island Fish & Wildlife Club. They do not have regular open hours except for special events like the Coho Bon Voyage held on the first Sunday of each June. However, depending on the time of year, the hatchery may have developing wild salmon eggs in the egg trays and salmon in the tanks ready to be released into the Bowen waterways. Their volunteers are at the Hatchery almost every day to clean, feed and care for the wild salmon.

Salmon Come Home
October 22, 2017

Hoy Creek Hatchery, Coquitlam, British Columbia V3B 7N3

Our annual SALMON COME HOME event is usually held the third Sunday of every October, and is co-hosted with the City of Coquitlam Municipality, and celebrates the return of the salmon to Hoy Creek. The return is special because the salmon return to the creek where they were spawned, after living most of their adult lives at sea. They return solely to spawn and then die.

In 2017 the date is set for Sunday, October 22nd. The free family event runs from 11am through to 3pm at the Hoy Creek Hatchery as many participating community groups share educational information. The highlight is viewing the returning chum salmon, but there is also live salmon demonstrations; musical entertainment; habitat restoration (planting); interactive children’s activities; food, and educational exhibits. Approximately 2000 people came out in 2016 and there was a good show of chum salmon in the stream. Prime viewing is middle of October through early November.

Dress for the weather, as the event runs rain or shine! The Hoy Creek Hatchery is located on Hoy Creek Trail Linear Park, west of the City Centre Aquatic Complex at the corner of Pinetree and Guildford Way.
