WHERE WE FISH

WILD RIVERS & WILD FISHING AN HOUR FROM VANCOUVER

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 generally do a hotel pickup at 7 AM, that’s when our guide will pick you up in Vancouver for the hour drive north to Squamish. You’ll follow the Sea to Sky highway along beautiful body of water known as Howe Sound.
Once in the Squamish Valley we get the waders on, string the rods and we’re off for the day. You can expect some short easy walks to the rivers. 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. We usually wrap up the day mid afternoon and will have you back in Vancouver for late afternoon.

Make sure you’re on the water with the best fishing guides in Vancouver.

SPRING & SUMMER TRIPS

FISH FOR WILD STEELHEAD, SALMON & TROUT

For fishing during the spring months we are lucky to have a healthy run of winter steelhead that return to the Squamish and Cheakamus rivers starting in early February with the best steelhead fishing being in March, April and early May. This can be a challenging fishery but it is also very rewarding with big hard-pulling chrome fish. The trout stick around this time of year as well and Spring trout fishing can be very very good. All of this within an hour of Vancouver!

Summer fly fishing in Vancouver start in June. This is trout season, when we target resident rainbows and big bull trout. The Squamish River is usually at its highest point in June due to melting snow, but most years our smaller local rivers and tributaries still offer some solid trout fishing in June. By mid July river conditions have vastly improved and by August we enjoy excellent trout fishing and our first encounters with returning salmon. On odd years (2013, 2015, 2017 etc.) we have Pink salmon that return, offering a superb fly fishing experience. Because summer river conditions can be variable please contact us for an up-to-date report.

“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!”

Garnett – Dundas, Ontario

FALL & WINTER TRIPS

FLY FISHING FOR SALMON & TROUT ON WILD RIVER

Fall is when the salmon migration begins on our rivers and this is a fantastic time for a trip. Tens of thousands of fish return to the Squamish River system and fishing from mid September to mid November for salmon can be spectacular with lots of big fish around. We fish within 5-10 miles of the open ocean and we never target spawning fish. We put our emphasis on targeting fresh healthy fish that pull hard! These are great trips, for beginner or seasoned fishing nuts, a chance at targeting wild salmon about an hour from the city.
During the winter and spring is when we see some of the best fly-fishing in the Vancouver area. During the winter months from December through February we generally target the native rainbow trout and wild bull trout that live in our home rivers. Trudging through the snow and fishing rivers void of anglers is a great way to spend a winters day and a shot at a bull trout is something unique to the West Coast.  By early March spring has sprung and fishing just keeps getting better.
