WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR DAY

GUIDED FLY FISHING FOR ALL EXPERIENCE LEVELS!

Upon booking we’ll send you a detailed email with everything so you’re ready for your day with us. In the morning we’ll meet you in Squamish or pick you up in Whistler, whatever works best for you. All gear is included for your day, your guide will have that along and ready for you. Whistler fishing seasons vary, more on that below, but our focus is on whatever the best fishing is during that time. We may fish close to Whistler or head north to Pemberton or south to Squamish, all depending on season and condtions.

We do a mix of walk-n-wade trips and use framed rafts to drift, depending on river conditions. 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. Obviously we don’t have control over the fish, but we will put you in all the right spots. We control all the other factors though, so expect great service, friendly fishing guides, top of the line tackle and an experience built to suit. And remember, we welcome all levels of anglers, from never-been-flyfishing before to seasoned vets!

WHERE WE FISH & GUIDE

TOURS TO SQUAMISH AND PEMBERTON

There are a ton of places to go fishing in Whistler and we have them all covered! Whistler is located about 1.5 hour north of Vancouver. Nestled in the Whistler valley are numerous lakes, home to rainbow trout and bull trout. These lakes include Nita, Alta, Green and Alpha among others. These are where we spend many of our half-day trips during the Summer month.

To the south lies the Squamish River and its four main tributaries including the Cheakamus, Mamquam, Ashlu and Elaho rivers. These beautiful rivers offer nearly year-round fly fishing opportunities for bull trout, wild steelhead and four species of Pacific salmon. Getting to these rivers is only about a 40 minute drive south from Whistler. These have been our home waters on which we’ve guided for over 20 years! The Squamish River is a free flowing river, draining about 2000 sq/km of land, a wild expanse of coastal wilderness. To the north of Whistler is the Pemberton Valley, home to several lakes and the beautiful little Birkenhead River. The Birkenhead is one of our favourite areas for fly fishing from Whistler, it offers great trout fishing in the Summer months.

Whistler Fly Fishing Spring

SPRING FISHING IN WHISTLER

FLY FISHING FOR STEELHEAD & BULL TROUT

Starting in March our Whistler fishing tours focus on the coastal Squamish River system south of Whistler. There are multiple rivers to fish here, including the Squamish, Cheakamus and Mamquam. We can fly fish for bull trout, rainbow trout and steelhead during March, April & May. There is fishing for wild steelhead in the Squamish River, throughout the Spring months. This can be a great timing in addition to a ski trip, throwing in a day or two of steelhead fishing after skiing! Good idea to book early as this time of year is generally very busy for us.
