Freshet on Highway

If you drove to Bella Coola in the last week or so or checked it mentioned water crossing Highway 20 in a couple of locations. This spot was one of them, very close to the bottom of "The Hill" on Highway 20.  Its a side channel of the Atnarko River called Camera Side Channel, that is normally a nice well behaved productive little channel that crosses under a bridge at the foot of the hill and back again a few hundred metres down the road.  Not this year, with changes to the Atnarko River in the flood last year there is now way too much water coming down this channel as well and the old stream course can't handle it.  Grizzly
