First Nations land dispute

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.

Well if you decide or things get worse in the Skeena region, come fishing with us, I flying from Aberdeen to Vancouver around the same time but not heading to the Skeena region, 5 of us are leaving Speyside and decided to do a little fishing tour of the mainland and Van Island for a couple of weeks that I do every year, just checking up on a little know Steelhead river on Vancouver Island.
