Patient Gulls

I checked one of the spawning tributaries of the Bella Coola River today and there are very very few chums, not the 1000's that should be there and have spawned by now.  The gulls are all being very patient along the Bella Coola River, waiting for something to happen, but it's not going to be a feast of chum salmon body parts this year.

I did talk to some river fishermen, who had extra days to fish this week - because of the road closure and the said they had hooked some nice shiny coho salmon though, so maybe we'll have another strong coho salmon year like last year, the grizzly bears will really appreciate that later this fall if they have not had their fill of chum salmon. 

We had a mostly cloudy day in the Bella Coola Valley.  The temperatures are much cooler and much more comfortable than last week.  This weekend is supposed to bring more rain.  Grizzly
