What a stretch of weather for January! It hasn't been extreme in any direction this month and the Bella Coola River has dropped right down and is very clear. You can easily see the bottom across the whole river now. I've heard the cutthroat trout fishing is getting very good as well. It certainly looked like the kind of river conditions today where you could enjoy some catch and release cutthroat fishing. It will be a struggle this weekend...fishing on the Bella Coola River or winter activities at East Branch in Tweedsmuir Park?
We had a high of 5 C today and relatively calm, although I heard it was a bit breezy in the town site of Bella Coola and Cathedral Point (Burke Channel) was blowing in the 40 km/h NE (outflow) range all day. It was interesting that there was no wind further up the valley. Grizzly
