Fly Fishing Report

Look forward to some very good fly fishing for sea-run Dolly Varden & Bull Trout on the famous Upper Pitt River from May thru to mid July. Pitt river trips are jet boat access only. This makes it a remote setting yet only 60-70 minutes from downtown Vancouver. The place is extremely scenic with lots of hungry trout!

» Salmon fly fishing in the Fraser River Valley & Squamish starts in early October and goes until late November at least.

» Don’t miss the Upper Pitt River flyfishing action, trips are limited.
