Our guided southern coast steelhead trips and packages take place on the Squamish River system, about an hour north of Vancouver. The wild and beautiful coastal rivers that make up this system offer the opportunity and winter-run steelhead from early March to mid May each year. Planning a BC steelhead fishing trip can be as easy as flying into Vancouver, we can even pick you up at the airport upon arrival. Packages include accommodations in Squamish, we generally have a 10-30 minute drive to where we fish each day! Once in the Squamish Valley you’ll be surrounded by snow-capped peaks and have the pure waters of our coastal rivers flowing beneath you. We do a combination of walk-n-wade days and using our framed 10 foot rafts to access more remote sections, all dependant on river conditions. One a multi-day trip you can expect to fish multiple rivers and rarely the same piece of water more than once!

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 early 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. This is not a fishery of numbers, it’s one of quality. If you’re looking for action we suggest you take your business elsewhere. If you want to fish some beautiful stretches of water and target chrome bright BC steelhead then we’ll put you in all the right places, they just have to be home! Winter steelheading is forever challenging, coming to us with that understanding will great bolster your enjoyment as well as ours.
  • Swing flies on wild rivers to chrome steelhead an hour north of Vancouver.
  • Combination of walk-n-wade and drift days on our beautiful free-flowing coastal rivers.
  • Fish with our incredible fly fishing guide staff, the most experienced in the area.

Our South Coast steelhead trips are aimed to anglers interested in a genuine Pacific Northwest experience on untamed rivers, swinging flies to winter 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 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’ve packaged our south coast fly fishing trips with comfortable accommodations at the Howe Sound Inn in Squamish BC to bring you affordable quality packages putting you into wilderness steelhead fishing with no big travel plans. The hotel has an onsite restaurant, bar and full amenities, so you won’t need any transportation and can relax after a day on the river Most packages work with a morning pickup in Vancouver, fishing that day, staying in Squamish that evening and then fishing the next day. If you’re flying into Vancouver we can pick you up on an evening flight and drive you to Squamish, you’ll then fish in the morning the next day.

“Chromer is the way to go, Yos Gladstone the owner is fantastic, he picked me up at Vancouver Airport and even had a sandwich in his truck for me. I spent two days on the Squamish River with my guide Paul. Who was wonderful too. My first day was wake and wade and the second was a drift. I had such a wonderful time cloud 9 wasn’t high enough. I have already booked for next year and can hardly wait.”
