Bulkley River a Brief History

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.
