“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!”

2020 OUTLOOK

WHISTLER FISHING REPORT

Our fishing season in Whistler for 2020 is looking positive. The early Winter here in Whistler has seen an incredible amount of snow, which has been great for skiing but also is good for the rest of the year as snow levels are integral to healthy local rivers and lakes.
As we move into the Spring months, we’ll be focusing on the Squamish River system south of Whistler, where we enjoy a beautiful fishery for wild steelhead, resident rainbow trout and native bull trout. Later into May and June our trips are mainly lake trips as local river conditions aren’t optimal due to warming temperatures and melting snow.
Our Summer fly fishing focus will be on the Birkenhead River north of Whistler. This is a beautiful small trout stream that offers consistent rainbow trout and bull trout fishing through July, August & September. We’ll also be fishing the upper Cheakamus River, a stunning section of river south of Whistler. Both are within easy driving distances and accessed by our full-day trips.
If you’re in Whistler during the Fall months, then there will be our Fall salmon fishery we enjoy annually on the Squamish River. All in all we are expecting another great season with our Whistler fishing program, we look forward to you being a part of it! If you’d like to fish with us in 2020 we’d love to have you!
Fish with us and you'll always be with the most experienced guide staff in the Sea to Sky region!

SUMMER & FALL

FISHING IN WHISTLER BC

Best time for a pink salmon fishing trip in Whistler is July, August & September. There’s also some great trout fishing in Whistler, Squamish and Pemberton. One of our favourite little trout rivers to fish is the Birkenhead River, located in the sunny Pemberton Valley, just north of Whistler. This mountain stream is home to some of the area’s biggest wild rainbow trout. The Birkenhead is a friendly river, offering easy wading, hiking and casting, perfect for all abilities.
The Fall months are an exciting time for fishing in Whistler. 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. The Squamish River system, south of Whistler, generally has its best fishing for chum and coho salmon is mid October to late November.

WINTER & SPRING

STEELHEAD & TROUT SEASON

If you’re coming for a ski vacation and want to get some fishing in then we definitely have some awesome winter fishing options for you (and no it’s not ice fishing!). Our trips from December to March focus on the rivers south of Whistler, where snow, cold and ice are minimal to none and that offer solid fishing for wild trout and steelhead. Our guides will pick you up and have all the warm gear ready for a day on the river. You’ll fish wild rivers that see very little angler pressure, targeting mainly resident bull trout, a type of char, and there is also the opportunity to fish for steelhead in the winter and spring months.
March & April are often our best two months on the Squamish River system south of Whistler. Our full day trips will get you into this wild coastal valley and swinging flies for big bull trout, wild rainbows and sea-run steelhead. This is an excellent time to book a trip, with great fishing and consistent river levels. As we move into May and and early June our focus shifts to fishing Whistler’s many alpine lakes. River levels tend to rise quickly during this time of year and lake fishing is a much better option. Local lakes are home to rainbow and cutthroat trout. We utilize belly boats and rafts to fish these lakes, some as close as five minutes driving time from Whistler Village.
