Pink Salmon

In an even calender year, the Bella Coola/Atnarko River system can have a large return of pink salmon, in fact historically the Atnarko River on the even years is the third largest run in BC after the Fraser and the Skeena.  The odd year runs are not as big, but there seems to be a few around this year and they are nearing the eind of their spawning around now.  They have lots of fresh gravel which was turned over after last years flood.

Today was a nice weather surprise, a full sunny day till mid afternoon gave great views of all the mountains with their dusting of fresh snow.  Grizzly
