Salmon Days – A Fish Story

Issaquah’s annual street festival marks the return of the intrepid fish.

Each Autumn the salmon make their way from the open ocean to Elliott Bay and up through Lake Union, Lake Washington and Lake Sammamish until they reach their ancient spawning beds in Issaquah Creek. The yearly return is at the heart of the community celebration. This year’s version is pictured below.
