Longfellow Creek salmon

Watch for coho salmon in October through December and chum in November as they migrate up Longfellow Creek! Start at Dragonfly Garden (corner of 28th Avenue SW and SW Dakota St., Seattle) and walk the trail south along the creek. Look under bridges where fish often hide. Check here later in the season for details on viewing parties and volunteer opportunities to do pre-spawn mortality surveys.

Longfellow Creek, only four miles long, begins underground in West Seattle’s Roxhill Park. From there it flows north through the Delridge Valley, into the West Waterway of the Duwamish River, Elliott Bay, and finally into Puget Sound.
