And a chum for Lee,

A chum for me.

A fish in net, had many fish like this. super fresh and sea lice.

We also had some great sturgeon fishing.

Glad you had a great trip Dai.

Two things that stand out to me in those photos, that beast on the beach behind you in the second photo, and that Pelican. What on earth was he doing there? That is quite far north for them I do believe.

Back to you Mr. Dog.

not the most prestigious fish, but the strongest salmon by far!
Lots of years back fishing in one of the 'S Rivers' in about knee deep water. I wasn't paying attention and a school of these things moved into the shallows behind me. Took a step back and tripped over one; BANG and flat on my back in the river.

They are even bigger at 'eye level.' 'Mr. Dog-Dog, aka "Bogie," on the beach behind me gave me a look: 'Stupid I know you can be, but this was a personal best?'

Actually, there are several Pelican nesting colonies in the Chilcotin area of BC. White Pelican Lake, and Stum Lake(rich in coarse fish) are 2 of the more important nesting areas. It is common to see Pelicans in Williams Lake too.
All of theses birds migrate south and likely follow the Fraser to the estuary as the shorter days and cooler temps trigger their migratory instincts.
Beautiful birds, don't know if I can say the same of the Ketas.
