Photo Essay: Damdochax Steelhead

Photojournalist Tim Romano tells the story of Alice and Hannah Belford’s unique steelhead operation on the Damdochax River in northern British Columbia. “The Damdochax is a small river by British Columbia standards, only 12 miles long. It flows from Damdochax Lake to the confluence of the third largest river in BC, the Nass. Although small in size, its stature as one of the most important steelhead tributaries of the entire Nass system is well recognized. It is located in an incredibly remote area of BC, requiring first a 700 mile flight north from Vancouver to Smithers, then another 135 mile floatplane trip to reach the lake.” Be sure not to miss the photo of Hannah’s muck boots.
