Built in 1989, the Horsefly River Spawning Channel was originally built to produce sockeye salmon for fisheries, but now focuses on the conservation of the Horsefly River sockeye stock. The spawning channel rears sockeye salmon exclusively, with adult returns ranging from 5,000 to one million depending on the year. The channels capacity is about 23,000 adults. There is a walking trail adjacent to the spawning channel that is open to the public. The spawning channel is the annual site for the local salmon festival. Visitors can expect to see spawning sockeye in September. The site has limited signage and there are no public facilities available. There is a campsite equipped with outhouses near the channel that visitors can use.

Man made spawning channel for the sockeye salmon. The channel is created to create the ideal environment for the spawning. A trail of 1hr around the channel gives information about the channel. When we were at the channel there were only a few salmon in the channel.
