While the above  photo has no fish in it, it is the precursor to fish.  These burlap sacks of rocks are ready to be put in place in the river channel to support a 'broomstick' style fence which will guide and capture chum salmon into a holding area.  The federal government fish hatchery staff at Snootli Creek will then take eggs from some of these fish to be hatched at the hatchery.  The chum salmon are now returning to the Bella Coola River.  Grizzly

  1. I've only been to Bella Coola once, and I was lucky enough to be there when the fish were running. It was quite a sight. - Margy
