BC Fires

Looks like my favourite fishing camp is off limits for some time to come. This is report from Pacific Angler ( fly fishing shop ).

Skagit River Fishing Report

Well we could be in for a wait if you want to fish the Skagit. The fire that started just north of Silver Tip campground has run southeast. It looks like it ran right over the campsite, jumped the river and is now running down the east side of the river.
Due to the rough terrain and the fact that there are no structures or people in the area they are not actively fighting this fire. Part of me would like them do something but that is the selfish fisherman in me. Fire is a natural occurrence that can revitalize an ecosystem. I have guided rivers up North that were hit by wild fires. Fishing usually suffers in the short term but from what I saw on the upper Atnarko and other Chilcotin rivers was that the fishing will improve when we look at 2-4 year cycle.
As it stands now the park is closed. From what we can tell this means the entire park both the Sumallo and the Silver/Skagit access is closed. If you guys out there have any more intel we would love to hear about it. We will keep you posted on any changes.
