Our Whistler fly fishing guide service operates year-round and we have multiple rivers and lakes for you to explore and a variety of fish, include trout, salmon and steelhead! Enjoy the stunning surrounds of glaciered mountain peaks and lush valleys as you explore this stunning part of British Columbia. With lots of activities for the whole family, including skiing in the Winter and mountain biking, rafting & hiking in the Summer, Whistler will sure to be a hit for all members of your group. Have a look at our Whistler Fishing FAQ’s blog post for answers to some of our most common Whistler fishing questions!

Our Whistler fishing trips during the Spring months focus on fishing the coastal river systems just south of Whistler. There are multiple rivers to fish, targeting bull trout, rainbow trout and steelhead. 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.
  • February through May our Whistler fishing trips focus on bull trout & steelhead fishing on coastal rivers.
  • Lots of summer fishing near Whistler, including our guided trout trips to local lakes and streams.

Summer comes with plenty of Whistler fishing options, most focused on trout fishing local lakes and small streams. Home to meandering rivers and emerald lakes the Whistler area is host to consistent rainbow trout fishing through the comfortably Summer months.  Early summer (June and July) the fishing is primarily on alpine lakes as rivers levels can be high due to melting snow on the mountains. Starting in mid July and through until late September is when we fish local rivers for rainbow trout, bull trout and sometimes salmon. A summer favourite is the Birkenhead River, a beautiful mountain stream about 25 minutes from Whistler. If you’re looking for a Whistler fishing trip this summer, drop us a line and we’ll let you know the best options!

During the Falls months of October and November our Whistler fishing trips will have you on wild coastal rivers catch big chum salmon and bright coho salmon. There is also very good bull trout fishing this time of year and that carries through the Winter months. Vibrant Fall colors play background to your day on the river, a superb time to be fishing with us and a great time to visit Whistler.
  • September, October & November are prime dates for fly fishing for salmon in rivers close to Whistler.
  • Get in a day of fishing with us while on your ski vacation to Whistler, some great winter trout fishing!

If you’re in Whistler for a ski or snowboard trip and want to do some fishing, we operate 12 months of the year and offer cool Whistler fishing trips all winter long. Winter months we fish primarily for trout, char and a sea-run rainbow trout called a steelhead. This is an exciting time for fishing in Whistler, as rivers see very little angling pressure and fishing can be quite good if river conditions are favourable. Generally in the Winter months we are fishing south of Whistler, out of the mountains and closer to the coast, about a 30-40 minute drive, conditions here are generally warmer than Whistler.

“Yos and his team of guides treated us like gold. We had two epic days on the river, and caught a ton of fish. The Chromer team runs a first class outfit with super experienced and knowledgeable guides, and excellent communication every step of the way; from booking, leading up to the event, and during. I can honestly say it was the most positive fishing experience in my life, and our entire group of newbies are hooked for life on spey casting!”
