There are fishing opportunities in this park. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence. Angling on the westside of the river or sandbars located within the park is discouraged during the presence of eagles.
Eagle viewing is at its peak from November to December, but significant numbers of eagles may be present from November to January. The number of eagles returning to feed each year depends on the number of salmon present and the weather conditions. The average number of eagles counted in the Squamish Valley since the 1994 record count of 3,769 is approximately 1,300.
Eagle viewing is best enjoyed by the public from areas outside the park boundaries. The main “Eagle Run” viewing facility is located on the municipal dyke, across from the Easter Seals Camp at 41015 Government Road in Brackendale. Exit Highway 99 at Garibaldi Way and head north on Government Road to the viewing area. An interpretive display explains the eagles and salmon life cycle.
EagleWatch is a volunteer community-based interpretive program offered to help visitors at the Eagle Run viewing area to understand the eagles and salmon life cycle. Interpretive signage and information panels are available to better understand eagles in our environment at the shelter on the dyke and at kiosks along the dike in this area.
