So Much Rain!!

What makes life interesting in the Bella Coola Valley is the dramatic swings in weather - hot and cold, drought and rain, heavy snowfalls, big winds and other interesting events.  Today we shifted from almost four months of extremely fine weather, with very low rainfalls, and some high summer temperatures to torrential coastal rain.  The forecast is for quite a bit more as well.  There was more rain towards the west and the town site of Bella Coola where the creeks were getting high at the end of the day.  We have had several inches since it started raining in ernest in mid morning.  I'll keep you updated on how the weekend unfolds.

Stopped by the barber shop today for a quick hair cut.  Always an interesting stop.  The intel on coho fishing was 4 coho caught on 4 days that he was out fishing (bank fishing) earlier in the week.  He also said he heard it slowed down towards the end of the week.

If you are planning on coming to Bella Coola in the next few days for fishing or recreating, check the Environment Canada weather, the River Forecast Centre or the Real Time Hydrometric Data for the Bella Coola River or Salloomt River water levels.  It could be a wet visit with 115-160 mm of rainfall forecast for Bella Coola in the next few days.  Grizzly
