This is a great campground, spread out nicely with grass, two services, WIFI, very clean bathrooms and a nice office. There is an area across the street with the cutest cabins, right on the river. For $100/night you can sleep four. It has the feel of a very nice fishing camp, which it really is. The big draw is salmon fishing, which of course is all over now. July is the big month when 90cm salmon are caught. That’s a three-foot salmon! You can only hook two for the day and you have to turn them loose. Every pool is named, and I’m sure someone is fishing every one. I’m not sure what kind they are, but they happily don’t die, but go back to sea. It looks like it will cost a non-resident about $100/day for the privilege. Just down the road toward town is a spring where you can fill your water bottles.
Is there a time of the year when you can keep the salmon?
I think there are places you can keep them, but not here. I don’t know how there are any salmon left with all the fishermen, bears and commercial fishermen.
Finally a post. I brushed my teeth yesterday for six minutes just to kill time. I hope my gums survive.
Don’t brush ’em too good. I may have to come back and do some work so I can afford to come back salmon fishing.
