Very beautiful and great to see when the fish are running! You can watch the Moricetown band members fish there when they are running.

Great view of fisherman netting salmon trying to get over the thunderous falls. Narrow gorge of the Bulkley River is Spectacular.

This is a fascinating spot to stop any time of year, but especially when the fish are running and the Indigenous people are down in the canyon fishing. Not a sight you would see every day.
