WHAT TO EXPECT

ON YOUR FLYFISHING TRIP 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 the fish, but we will put you in all the right spots. We control all the other factors though, so expect great service, friendly fishing guides, top of the line tackle and an experience built to suit you and your group.
We service all the downtown Vancouver & Whistler hotels and can easily make special transportation arrangements. You can also opt to meet us in Squamish BC, this will maximize your day of fly fishing!

WHERE DO WE GO FISHING?

The majority of our trips take place in Squamish just 45 minutes north of Vancouver. We do guide on other rivers and lakes near Vancouver and Whistler.

WHAT DO WE NEED TO BRING?

Absolutely nothing. We supply all wading and fishing tackle. If you'd like to bring your own you are more than welcome to.

BEST TIME FOR FLY FISHING NEAR VANCOUVER?

We enjoy a long season of fly fishing locally, with opportunities for fishing 12 months of the year. If you have a date in mind let us know, we'll be happy to let you know what is available during that time.

DO I NEED ANY EXPEREINCE?

Absolutely not. We're happy to welcome any ability level, including total beginners. We'll make sure everyone has a fun safe day!

2021 FLY FISHING OUTLOOK

VANCOUVER & SQUAMISH FISHING REPORT

We’ll expect our 2021 Vancouver fly fishing season to kick off in early February, with trout fishing on local rivers and the first push of Spring steelhead on area rivers. With a milder winter forecasted this should give us a nice slow Spring run off with fishing into May on local rivers. March and April are prime time for our steelhead & bull trout season, a beautiful time to be fishing on our home waters of the Squamish River system.
We’re also looking forward to the return of pink salmon to the Squamish River this Summer. Starting in July 2021 we’ll enjoy fly fishing for pink salmon. This is great time to enjoy a fishing trip with us and this fishery will carry through until mid September.
We’re also looking forward to a solid Fall salmon season, swing flies for Pacific chum and coho salmon. Fishing during the Fall of 2020 was very good, with some of the best coho salmon returns in recent memory, so that should bode well for this year as well. Forecasts for returning Pacific salmon look good for October and November. This is always a popular time for a Vancouver fishing trip, with lots of action and big fish on the fly!

Fall Salmon Fly Fishing

SUMMER & FALL FISHING

SALMON FLY FISHING ON WILD RIVERS

Flyfishing during the Summer months focus on remote river fishing for wild pink salmon run of the Squamish system. This is an excellent fishery, with healthy returns of pink salmon every second year, a pacific angler’s paradise.
Early Summer is when we have high river levels and fishing options are limited. We have some small creek and lake fishing for rainbow trout that time of year. The Cheakamus, Mamquam and Ashlu rivers are tributaries of the Squamish and offering a variety of trout fishing. Prime season for pink salmon fly fishing is late July to mid September.
October and November are an exciting time for salmon fly fishing near Vancouver. This is when you can swing flies and go spey fishing for big migrating Pacific salmon as they return to the rivers near Vancouver BC. The best time for fly fishing for chum and coho salmon is mid October to late November. There is also some good fishing for bull trout and rainbow trout during this time.

WINTER & SPRING FISHING

SPEY FISHING FOR STEELHEAD & BULL TROUT NEAR VANCOUVER

With generally mild Winter temperatures we are pleased to offer fly fishing through the Winter months. In December, January and February we have fishing for bull trout and rainbow trout on local rivers. These trout are feeding on the remnants of Fall salmon runs, gorging on eggs and flesh. If you can brave some cooler, wetter fishing conditions, then a Winter trip will have you casting flies on wild rivers void of other anglers.
In February we start seeing the first steelhead roll into the wild rivers near Squamish and Whistler. 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 best month for a Spring fly fishing trips with nice river conditions. By April most of the steelhead are now in the river, making it a perfect time for spey fishing for big bright fish! April is also a soldi month for bull trout fishing. 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 roam free.
