Spring sunshine is here and the fishing is picking up. We are currently fishing in Squamish for Steelhead, Dolly Varden and both Rainbow and Cutthroat Trout. The main difference between the 4 different species of fish is that the Steelhead are entering the rivers from the ocean, while the other 3 species are resident fish in our rivers year round.
Steelhead fishing is more hunting, looking for 1 or 2 fish for a full days fishing. The reward here is that the fish are silver bright and large, some reaching 20 pounds. This is not a game for those anglers who are numbers oriented, but having a chance at a fish of lifetime can make up for the difficult fishing.
The fishing for Trout and Dolly Varden is different in the fact that there are more of these fish in our local rivers. These fish tend to be between 1 and 5 pounds and are in the process of eating the salmon fry that are emerging and migrating out of the river.
Call or email us for the latest conditions.
Note * River fishing requires hiking and wading - participants should be in good physical health.
We do recommend a full day as this allows us to travel farther and to fish different waters.
