Fully guided, our packages include transportation from Vancouver, hotel accommodations and full-days of guided fishing. These are a unique fishing trips for steelheaders interested in experiencing BC’s beautiful southern rivers and the winter steelhead that call them home.
One of my favourite times of year is March and April when we’re guiding on the Squamish River, swinging flies for winter-run steelhead. This is a small run of fish, but when we find one their stunning, hammering flies and giving serious anglers the ultimate fly fishing challenge. My crew and I are pleased to offer packages and day trips on the Squamish River system, with prime time being mid March to early May.

Managing exceptions is key when it comes to Winter steelhead fishing in British Columbia. Some days are incredible, we have multiple opportunities at fish and on other days we do it all right and nobody complies, simply the way it goes. What you can expect is to fish the beautiful Squamish River system with the top fly fishing guides in southwestern British Columbia, enjoying a genuine experience and see what real hustle is all about!
Our Squamish River fishing packages are flexible, pick and choose your days. If you’re looking for prime dates you’ll want to aim from mid March to early May. We’ll pick you up in Vancouver, we can even arrange for an airport pickup, and then we’ll drive you north, through Sea to Sky Country and into the Squamish River valley. Here you’ll find miles of optimal water to swing flies and breath in the coastal air as you swing flies for wild steelhead.
We plan our packages for an early morning Vancouver pickup, so you’re fishing that day, then staying in Squamish that night. Subsequent guided days and evenings in Squamish, with a return to Vancouver on your last day of fishing. We do a mix of walk-n-wade and drift days depending on conditions and preferences. We have a ton of water to fish, a two or three day package is what we generally recommend, but you’re welcome to climb aboard for a long trip.

Winter steelhead fishing isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s not a fishery were fish come easy, we earn ever single winter steelhead that comes to hand. What that means if you’re looking for an action trip, this isn’t it. If you’re looking for a genuine BC steelhead fishing experience on some beautiful rivers with our great guide staff then you might really enjoy this experience.
Squamish River steelhead live in funky spots, they’re not your typical fish and you find them in some secret places that only the most experienced guides can stick you in. We swing flies, mainly bright coloured intruder patterns and often it can be many casts before a fish climbs on. They are aggressive wild fish, a rewarding prize to those with persistence.
We have a variety of rivers to fish, the Squamish River is built for swung fly fishing, with long expansive runs and beautiful hold water for fish. In the early season our focus is on the lower Squamish River, fishing sections only a few kilometres from open ocean. Fish are chrome bright, often with sea lice on them and they crush flies. As we move later in our Spring season our focus is on the upper Squamish River, a rugged wilderness valley where we’ve called home for the past 20+ years. This is wild country, we often see mountain goats on the high cliffs, elk in the valley and even grizzly bears roaming the back channels.



There isn’t a more convenient fishing getaway than fishing with us north of Vancouver in the Squamish River valley. We offer year-round fly fishing trips from Vancouver here, not just during steelhead season. We’ll be picking you up in Vancouver, and driving you north, along scenic Howe Sound and into the Squamish Valley. The usually drive time is about an hour. On our packages we generally try to fish the day we pick you up, so plan on staying in Vancouver the night before your trip. You can also opt to meet us in Squamish, if your driving up from the US then this is the best option. For a better idea of an expected itinerary, simply contact us via email and we’ll be happy to give you more travel details.



We’ve packaged our south coast fly fishing trips with comfortable accommodations at either the Executive Suites or the Howe Sound Inn, both in Squamish BC to bring you affordable quality packages putting you into wilderness steelhead fishing with no big travel plans. The hotels have an onsite restaurants, bars and full amenities, so you won’t need any transportation and can relax after a day on the river.
If you are staying in Whistler or would like to meet us in Squamish, that can all be easily arranged as well. We have a full fly fishing guide staff in Whistler BC who can pick you up and take you fishing. Meeting us in Squamish is a great option if you want to have a vehicle while on your trip or if you plan on fishing on your own for a few days after your trip with us.
