AREA - Flora & Fauna:

The Bulkley river offers a world class steelhead fishery. The fall steelhead run lasts from mid-August until freeze up or when fishing season ends on December 31st. The Bulkley also has annual runs of Chinook, Coho, Pink and sockeye salmon. The substantial chinook run starts before the river officially opens on June 15th and lasts several months. Cohos and pinks arrive in early September along with the occasional sockeye. Jet boating and canoeing to and from River House provides miles of experiencing this almost untouched wilderness. Bear, moose, elk and deer sightings happen on a regular basis with the occasional lucky drifter seeing the allusive wolf or cougar.

A fifteen acre lake resides on the southern property line between the River House property and government owned Crown Land. The lake holds over ten million gallons of water topped off annually from the snow melt. The overflow provides a seasonal small stream that flows through the property to the Bulkley River. While the lake is not home to native fish annual trout stocking provides wonderful fishing opportunities for visitors.

The lake is home to the endangered Western Spotted Toad and is one of the largest breeding areas in Northern BC. Thousands of toads arrive from the bush in mid-May to early June for a mating season that last nearly two weeks. They return to the bush leaving behind millions of eggs to turn into pollywogs and eventually toads. Experiencing the entire process is interesting and amazing. The lake is home to many ducks, geese and grebes that arrive annually to raise their families. In the fall, starting sometimes as early as August 15th, the southern migration of ducks, geese and swans begins. It is not uncommon to see flocks of well over a hundred ducks spend a day or two on their way south. Once the geese start moving south hardly a day goes by without a flock of fifty to seventy five geese come in late in the day, spend the night, and depart early in the morning. Just before freeze up, in Early November, small groups of swans arrive and spend a day or two before heading south.
