September - the Best Month

I love the month of September.  I think it's the best month everywhere, but in the Bella Coola Valley and the Chilcotin my choice of September makes it because:

  • We  usually get some nice windless sunny days with beautful clear air.
  • You can fish on the inlets and not expect as much wind
  • The Bella Coola River starts dropping and the coho arrive in numbers
  • The weed pulling in the garden is over - it's time to enjoy the corn and all the other goodies.
  • Mushrooms are coming out - Shaggy Manes and Pine Mushrooms
  • Hunting season is open
  • Most of the yard work is done
  • The mosquitoes are done
  • There are clear frosty mornings in the Chilcotin
Best of all about September, you still have the month of October between you and November - the worst month in Bella Coola.  Grizzly
