Steelhead Fishing up in Smithers ,BC

Head up to Smithers for the Thanksgiving weekend Oct. 6th. Our son Andrew lives there with his wife Sue and son Ronen. Our other son Shane flies up and we hope to spend a week visiting our grandson and also catching up on visits with old friends. This is the town where we have a lot of memories having raised a family and lived, worked and played for almost 32 years before moving away.
Ready to load up the riverboat for some Steelhead fishing on the Bulkley River.

Andrew will be our capitan and guide as he knows just about every fishing hole there is in the Bulkley river.

Tatlow Falls at low water. We have canoed this river a hundred times mostly at much higher water. Nice time of the year. The two Bros, Shane and Andrew checking out the best place to fly fish.
Shane has one on for a few moments.
This time he gets the first of the day. The Steelhead is landed, photoed for 10 seconds and released.
They're out there somewhere.

Had a few days of good fishing, maybe 5 fish caught and released. Nice time of the year.

Ronen in his back yard ready to roll in the leaves.

The 2 Bros catching up on their lives as they now live a 12 hour drive apart.

Took the long drive back home to Coldstream. Nice to be back with friends we haven't seen for awhile in Smithers. Great place to raise a family.
