I am happy to share my local knowledge and my enthusiasm for this area with you. Here, you will find, as much local info and links as possible to help you discover Smithers and area.
The live photos show the Bulkley River with Hudson Bay Mountain in the background. The focus of this page will be on the Bulkley Valley / Smithers area but recreational information about the entire North half of the province will be included. My hope is that over time this page will grow to be the best source for fishing, hiking and outdoor information.

The Bulkley River in British Columbia is a major tributary of the Skeena River. Known for the finest steelhead fishing in Canada and among the best in the world.
The name Bulkley was given for Colonel Charles Bulkley, the Engineer-in-charge of the survey team who, in 1866 explored the area in preparation for the failed Russian American Telegraph. The Bulkley, a smaller stream running through Houston, and the Morice join just west of Houston. At the point of their joining they become the Bulkley, not the Morice despite the fact the Morice is larger. This was done by Poudrier, a government cartographer who, it is rumoured, never saw the region.
