Kokanee Spawning

Location 
Kokanee Spawning
Kokanee are genetically identical to sockeye salmon, but are land locked in lakes and reservoirs.
 
Here in the Great Pacific Northwest, these fish leave the security of deep waters for shallow creeks where they migrate to spawn in their full glory. This is the third of a few underwater videos showing kokanee as they migrate upstream.

Wonderful, thanks so much for sharing! I don't think I'll ever get over that shocking red in the rivers. It's always awe-inspiring.

Awesome footage!  Did you use a Gopro for this?

Hey Paul,

No, it was not a GoPro.  I have a Nikon Coolpix AW100 waterproof camera that fits nicely in my vest pocket or my hip pack.

I was in Montana last year and was taking a picture of my buddy landing a nice rainbow.  My left foot was really close to the edge of a short drop off and you guessed it.  I fell in doing a butt plant in the water.  My Sony camera got soaked and was irreparably damaged, so I picked up this Nikon at Costco.

It's been a great little camera, but not quite as nice as the GoPro Hero3.  I'd love to have one for all of the mounting options.

Thanks for commenting!

Eric
