ACCOMMODATIONS

RIVERSIDE CABINS OR A COZY INN

Our hassle free south coast packages include two different accommodation options. The first, and most convenient, is hotel accommodations at the Howe Sound Inn. The inn is located in the town of Squamish, with an onsite restaurant and brew pub. This makes for easy dining arrangements in the evening. The second option is the cabins and Sunwolf. These are riverfront cabins, right on the Cheakamus River, located away from town in the heart of Paradise Valley. The cabins are well suited to one angler per cabin and have in-suite kitchenettes. Keep in mind there are no place for evening meals, so you’ll need to make your own way into Squamish for a bite. Let us know what you’d prefer when making your inquiry.

“Trusting our steelhead trips to Yos and his team at Chromer Sport Fishing is easy. Its been a pleasure to deal with a professional outfitter with local knowhow.”

HOME WATER INSIGHT

FROM OUR CREW

This is our home turf, the crew at Chromer Sport Fishing knows steelheading on these south coast rivers better than anyone. We should, we’ve been guiding and fishing these rivers for almost 20 years! As we mentioned, prime time is mid March to early May, if you’re looking for the ultimate timing try to aim for April. This is when river conditions are most favourable and when the majority of our steelhead have roamed into the river. Don’t come expecting a ton of fish, this is a quality fishery for big chrome winter steelhead, not a numbers game. We’ll put you in all the right places, they just have to be home!

“We had great communication during booking and before the trip, pick up right on time, top notch equipment, and guides who obviously knew the river for winter steelhead. They provided excellent instruction and advice and were both very professional and friendly. Highly recommend a trip with Chromer, first class outfit all around!”

ABOUT THE FISHING

SWINGING FLIES FOR CHROME BRIGHT STEELIES

Our South Coast steelhead trips are aimed to anglers interested in the experience, not the numbers. If you’re looking for lots of bites, this isn’t the trip for you. What you can expect is a genuine Pacific Northwest experience on untamed rivers, swinging flies to chrome wild steelhead only a few miles of open ocean. The area and the rivers we fish are stunning and if you believe hooking a fish is a bonus then you’ll enjoy this trip immensely. Each day of your trip we’ll venture deep into a wild river valley, wading long sweeping runs in hopes of a chance at one of the returning winter steelhead that call this system home. This is a small run of fish, but with our crew of guides, all who’ve guided for 10+ years on the system, we’ll give you the best possible chance at connecting with one. The main focus of these trips is on the Squamish River, a free flowing system with origins in the ice fields north of Whistler.
The Squamish is has several smaller tributaries that we fish as well, including the Cheakamus and Ashlu rivers. The Squamish generally provides us with the best fly fishing water, with long runs and easy gradients. The lower section is where we find most of the early season fish in February and March while our focus draws to the upper Squamish later in the season during April and early May. We use a variety of means to access the river, although the walk-n-wade method is often best, we sometimes use smaller rafts to shuttle across and we do have a jet boat to access the lower Squamish River.
