Winters Salmon Festival

November 5 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Free

Come Celebrate the return of the Fall-run Chinook Salmon at Winters Rotary Park on Saturday, November 5th from 11-4! This annual festival celebrates the return of Fall-run Chinook to Putah Creek. Fall-run Chinook begin returning to Putah Creek around October each year. The festival will host live bands, food, and educational activities!

Following several years of absence, in December of 2012, fall-run Chinook salmon returned to the lower reaches of Putah Creek where they could be seen spawning from the car bridge and Winters Putah Creek Park. Their return may be attributed to a myriad of initiatives including removal of the Los Rios check dam, increased flows from the Putah Diversion Dam, and enhancement of the riparian and spawning areas within the waters of Putah Creek. Many of these efforts are the work of The City of Winters, Solano County Water Agency, Winters Putah Creek Committee, Lower Putah Creek Coordinating Committee, Putah Creek Council, landowners, and many more!
