Squamish River fly fishing is matched with superb scenery!
Nestled in a glacier fed river valley just 1 hour north of Vancouver, British Columbia the Squamish river is one of BC’s perfect locations for great fly fishing. Once you’re here it’s like being days away from civilization! Riverside cabins allow you to settle down and enjoy the natural beauty here. Four rivers are within a 20 minute drive to target Bull Trout, Steelhead Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout or Salmon. Squamish River fishing trips not only offer incredible scenery but also wildlife like Black Bears, Bald Eagles, Elk, and Deer. It’s just one of those places you’ll want to return to whenever possible!
What you can keep here:
It’s a catch & release river for all Trout and Steelhead so angling pressure is usually very low in the Spring. Summer Pink Salmon fly fishing allows anglers to keep 2 per day(based on openings). Fall Salmon fishing sometimes permits anglers to retain Chum and Coho Salmon. With the exception of Pink Salmon season the river is pretty quiet for angling pressure.

Salmon Fly Fishing on the Squamish River
Pink Salmon available July 20 to late August ♦ Chum or Coho Salmon mid October to mid November
The Pink Salmon run here is huge! They only return in odd # years. Average size Pinks are 4-5 lbs but go up to 10lbs. Our clients have landed up to a 100 fish in a single day on several occasions. Chum Salmon in the Squamish river are big, powerfull and just hours from the ocean so expect silver bullets here! Don’t use anything lighter than a 8 weight for these Chums. Average size is 12 lbs but fish over 20 are encountered every year. Our angling guests have landed dozens of Chums in a single day here.
Trout and Steelhead Fly Fishing on the Squamish River
Trout and Steelhead available March to late April
Spring time is Bull Trout and Steelhead time here. Salmon fry are coming out of the gravel beds and starting their downstream migration for the Pacific ocean. Bull trout are staging in key areas for the feed! A properly presented custom tied fly will have your line going tight. Squamish river Bull trout average 2-3 lbs but often go over 5 lbs and even up to 12 lbs. Steelhead fly fishing here is best from early March to later April. These wild Steelhead are great fighters. For good chances at hooking a Steelhead you should have some previous experience and proper casting lessons as an asset.
