Continuing with my Herring Spawn story, I'll re-post the map of the area showing where I viewed, and photographed the spawn.
After leaving Columbia Beach on Sunday, mentioned in a previous post, we went on to Qualicum Beach, and although we saw fishing boats passing by and more sea lions and gulls than usual, there was not a lot of spawn showing up, but if we craned our necks to the right we could see where the spawn 'strip' was.
We decided to head back to French Creek and see if it was busier than the previous day. I couldn't resist taking a photo of these crates stacked up by the processing plant:

We could see that things were going full swing by the plant, with boats being unloaded, and fish coming off the conveyor belt:

There were more people here this day, taking in the spectacle, and some were fishing/jigging for herring.
