Has the land dispute that is going on at the moment on the Skeena system affected any access points to fishing holes in any rivers in the disputed region ?
I am up in Smithers end of September and plan mainly to fish on the Bulkley and possibly 2 3 days on the Kispiox. I do understand the waters that are in the disputed region, however has anyone fished in this region in last couple of weeks had any problems on the water, or getting to the water. There is couple of runs just below Moricetown that I normally fish, Im wondering if it will be ok leaving the car and fishing the water.

Im travelling a long way to get to BC, would hate to go to all the expense, then find I am walking into a heavy dispute, and have very little water to fish, crowded with disgruntled fishermen stressing to get into the pools.

You're right Fred. Those were the days, and I'm glad I was there to see them, smell them, feel them, fish them!

I'm afraid those days and the attitudes that went with them are long gone.

I grew up in a town very much like Mayberry. No locked doors, fly rods leaning against the wall outside the screen door, keys in the ignition of my 1950 Ford pickup, ready to go.


OK, enough of that. Back to your regularly scheduled program.
Thanks JD. Great video in which concerns are married with awesome scenes of what could be lost when, not if, something happens.

Well worth our time and effort to see that this pipeline never comes to fruition.
