Vancouver
Fly Fishing Report

Squamish River:

The Squamish River is still producing the odd Coho Salmon but this will come to a end any day now.

Bull Trout will be available throughout December as they are quite active feeding on salmon eggs and bits of flesh. Bull Trout fly fishing is really good once we hit mid March and April is a prime month as they feed on salmon fry.

Steelhead arrive in the Squamish River around early to mid March depending on river flows. Low = slow, flow = go!

October/November on the Squamish is great for Coho and Chum salmon. This is a truly remarkable fly fishing experience. Hotel pickup from downtown Vancouver or Whistler is available.

Vedder-Chilliwack River:

Steelhead will be available for the fly fisher usually around February when the water temps warm up and fish become a bit more active. March & April are great months for fly fishing here.
