I took a quick tour of the accessible salmon walk on Sunday, Sept. 8 and observed many active healthy sockeye, so it seems there will be salmon for the salmon festival on BC River’s Day weekend.
The water temperature is a warm 17 C which is quite remarkable since we have not experienced any frost here in the village, and it could be a lot worse.
The salmon walk is in the best shape it has ever been, so a person with a wheelchair should have no problems getting around, so if you want to come early before the festival, now is a great time to view the miracle of spawning sockeye.
If you are from out of town check our website for links to local accommodation at www.horseflyriver.ca and stay for a weekend of salmon watching.
There should be good salmon viewing on salmon festival weekend Sept 28-29, so be sure to mark salmon festival weekend on your calendar. Is there anything finer than the smell of damp leaves and rotting salmon?
See you there!
