FISHING INFORMATION

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 the beach. 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 trip.
Our focus is to put you in all the right places, the fish just have to be home! What that means is our guide staff works tirelessly to put you in the optimal scenarios to connect you with a wild Spring steelhead. These fish live in funky spots, especially Squamish steelhead, 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 and if you have the patience to cast step, cast step, we’ll make sure you cover all the right water and maximize your opportunity at a fish or two!
  • Combination of walk-n-wade and drift days on our beautiful free-flowing coastal rivers.
  • Fish with our pro fly fishing guide staff, the most experienced in the area.
We have lots of different water 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. This is a true wilderness fishing trip, don’t doubt that for a second.
Managing exceptions is key when it comes to steelhead fishing. 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. We can always guarantee you’ll fish with the top guides in southwestern British Columbia, enjoying a genuine experience and see what real hustle is all about. We love what we do, and we love Spring steelhead fishing. You’ll leave with an entire new knowledge of steelheading, the area and you’ll be a better caster than when you started. Hope to see you on the water!

“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.”
