WHERE?

WILD RIVERS WITHIN AN HOUR OF 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.

All guides are fully licensed and insured and will make sure everyone has the best possible experience on our home waters.

SPRING & SUMMER TRIPS

TROUT AND STEELHEAD

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.

FALL & WINTER TRIPS

SALMON AND TROUT

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.

READY TO ROLL?

GETTING READY FOR YOUR TRIP

When you book we’ll send you good things to bring. Remember, we include all premium Simms wading gear and boots as well as all the specialized fly fishing equipment. We always suggest you dress warmly with some thermals for under the waders, water temps can be cool, and definitely some warm socks. We don’t include lunch, so bring something to eat and instructions on getting a fishing license online will be sent with your reservation confirmation. Sunglasses, a hat, a good attitude and a camera are always nice to have along as well. Keep in mind, most of our trips are walk-n-wade, so expect to do some walking and hiking. A good stretch of your legs prior to your trip will help you stay limber and make the most of your day!

“Our guides Yos and Pat treated us to great company, lots of laughs, top-notch gear and just an all-around positive experience. These guys went out of their way to make everything right and worked their butts off to get us into some fish. Very patient teachers of spey casting and reading the water. I recommend them to anyone who loves fly fishing, regardless of your skill level.”
