WHAT TO EXPECT

ON YOUR DAY WITH US

We focus the majority of our guided trips on the Squamish River system, about an hour north of Vancouver. The unique and beautiful coastal rivers that make up this system offer nearly year-round fly-fishing opportunities for salmon, trout and steelhead. We’ll pick you up in Vancouver and follow the Sea to Sky highway, once in the Squamish Valley we get the waders on, string the rods and we’re off for the day.

We do a mix of walk-n-wade trips an use framed rafts to drift, depending on river conditions. On a clear day you’ll be surrounded by snow-capped peaks and have the pure waters of our coastal rivers flowing beneath you. Wading is relatively easy and depending on conditions and agility you can expect to fish a variety of river stretches in a day. Obviously we don’t have control over what the fish, but we will put you in all the right spots. We control all the other factors though, so expect great service, friendly knowledgeable guides, top of the line equipment and an experience built to suit you and your group.
Our trips are eight hours, often they go a little longer than that, so expect to be back in Vancouver between 4.00 PM.  We service all the downtown hotels and can make easily make special pickup/dropoff arrangements.

“Yos and his team of guides treated us like gold. We had two epic days on the river, and caught a ton of fish. The Chromers team run a first class outfit with super experienced and knowledgeable guides, and excellent communication every step of the way. I can honestly say it was the most positive fishing experience in my life!”

2019 OUTLOOK

VANCOUVER FLY FISHING

If you’re looking at a fly fishing trip with us in 2019 we’re gearing up for another busy fun year and are looking forward to welcoming new and returning clients for our 12th year of operation!

We’ll expect our 2019 season to kick off in early February, with trout fishing on local rivers and the first push of Spring steelhead on the Squamish River.  With a milder winter forecasted this should give us a nice slow Spring run off with fishing into May on local rivers. The spring months of March and April are prime time for our steelhead & bull trout season, a beautiful time to be fishing on BC’s southern coast. We expect our usually high water in May and June, and will be running our Beach Fly Fishing Trips during that time.
Summer 2019 is a Pink Salmon year, which is will ensure awesome fishing for salmon starting in July! This only happens on odd years, so if you’re fishing with us this Summer your timing is great. Pink Salmon fishing on the Squamish River is a pile of fun and we’re expecting good returns of fish this season. Our Fall salmon fishing season targeting chum and coho salmon will kick off in early October. We are expecting healthy salmon returns for our Fall season.
If you’d like to fish with us in 2019 we’d love to have you. Our business is built on great service, honest advice and a crew of the best fly fishing guides in Vancouver. Head to our contact page to send us an inquiry.

SUMMER & FALL

FLY FISHING IN VANCOUVER BC

Our Vancouver fly fishing trips during the Summer months in 2019 will be focused on the Pink Salmon run of the Squamish River. This is an excellent fishery, with huge returns of fish every second year, so if you’re fishing with us this Summer you’re in luck!

Mid May to late June is when see our highest river levels of the year due to the snow melt. Options are somewhat limited this time of year, but we do have our Vancouver Saltwater Beach Fly Fishing Program at that time. There are also some smaller creeks that offer trout fishing in the early Summer months. The Cheakamus, Mamquam and Ashlu rivers are tributaries of the Squamish River system and tend to stay in shape better during the Summer, offering a variety of trout fishing. Prime Pink Salmon fishing is late July through mid September.
The Fall months are an exciting time for fly fishing near Vancouver. This is when you can swing flies for big migrating salmon as they return from the saltwater into the rivers of BC’s south coast. This is a super busy time of year for us and a good idea to look ahead and plan your trip early to avoid disappointment. Generally the best fly fishing for chum and coho salmon is mid October to late November. We can also trout fish for resident bull trout and rainbows during this time.

WINTER & SPRING

FLY FISHING IN VANCOUVER

Winter fly fishing in Vancouver certainly comes with its challenges, but also its rewards. The challenge most often than not is the weather, Winter temperatures in December and January are at their coldest of the year and we sometimes have snow on the ground. For those willing to brave the cold (and the wet) they can be rewarded with rivers void of people and hungry trout, especially in December as they gorge on the remnants of the Fall salmon runs.

Starting in February we start seeing the first steelhead roll into the lower Squamish River and some of the smaller tributaries including the Cheakamus River. By early March the warming temperatures tend to make for idilic river conditions as some of the low laying snowpack begins to melt. April is our prime Spring month for our Vancouver fly fishing trips.  River conditions are usually excellent, with coastal rivers in ideal shape. The majority of the steelhead have moved in and we’ll put you in all the right places to optimize your chances at these stunning wild fish. We spend the majority of our time on the upper Squamish River in April, accessing the river by walk-n-wade and raft drifts. This is a beautiful area, about 90 minutes north of Vancouver, where elk, mountain goats and other wildlife roams free.
