Salmon Weathervane – King Salmon Swimming

King Salmon Weather Vane (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) Swimming


The King Salmon Weather Vane, Oncorhynchus tshawytscha, also known as a Chinook Salmon, Spring Salmon, Tyee Salmon or Quinnat Salmon, featured in the image above consists of a swimming copper fish with brass fins and tail. We portray this salmon as a younger fish in a natural setting near the bottom of a river bed chasing a smaller fish. However, if you prefer, we can just make a weathervane for you based on just the fish itself. For an example of this, please take a look at our Chinook Salmon weathervane design.

This salmon weathervane can either be crafted in all copper or the body in copper and the fins and tail in brass for a subtle distinction between the metals. We can also optionally gild the fish’s speckles, fins and tail as well as the little fish so they will remain golden as the rest of the weathervane undergoes its natural patina process.

Most of the fish weathervanes we make here at West Coast Weather Vanes are made for sport anglers or as a gift from their spouses. Who wouldn’t want to proudly display this symbol of their interest? Its certainly something to look up at and enjoy while planning one’s next fishing adventure.

A large Chinook is a prized and sought-after catch for a sporting angler. They are native to the North Pacific Ocean and the river systems of western North America ranging from California to Alaska. They are also indigenous to Asian rivers ranging from northern Japan to the Palyavaam River in the Siberia.
