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.

There are NO EVICTIONS NOW. The tribe has moved the date for the evictions to 16 Sep. There will be a meeting with the tribes with the Govt on 6 sep. Reading the info from the tribe, they feel they will get there demands. Go to thread 107. From two very good sources, and have been fishing in the lower bulkly , have had no problems, and do not know of any. Tried to get info from Oscar,s, but the have not replied to me. Remember the Bulkly above Moricetown and all the way up the Morice IS NOT affected by this issue. I am going to bet on the tribe getting there demands and head on up the first of Sep, and fishing will be normal.
