Busy few weeks

October 26th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

October 26, 2017 - Life’s been hectic the past few weeks. Oh, who am I kidding, how about for the past few months. I’ve been up to my eyeballs in brood season, but as much as it’s been busy, it’s also been very enjoyable. I really do have the best job and get to work [...]

There are four creeks that the facility takes and releases chum to: Snootli Creek, Thorsen Creek, Saloompt Creek, and Fish Creek at the Airport Channel.
