July 2019

Updated: Aug 3, 2019

Lake fishing is in full swing at all elevations.  We are fishing for rainbow and cutthroat trout in the local lakes on our half day excursions.  We have had some excellent results on our full day trips that allow us to travel a little further afield.  Typically, we have an opportunity to can catch bigger fish when we can fish the more isolated and more distant waters.  If you are keen to angle for larger rainbows, commit to the full day trip (9 hours).  The best fishing through the summer months is usually at the higher elevations.  However, you can still fish our Valley lakes effectively provided you get out on the water early or in the late afternoon/evening.  We are catching rainbows and cutthroat trout utilizing both sub-surface flies (micro leeches) and dry flies (elk-hair caddis).  The fishing has been very good!

We are starting to see the rivers drop to fishable levels for Bull trout and rainbow trout and can offer excellent (but challenging) dry fly and nymph fishing.

2019 is a Pink Salmon year and it is our expectation that the runs should start to arrive towards the middle of this month.  Pinks offer good sport and range between three to eight pounds.  The runs usually keep us busy through most of August as well.

Our float plane trip into Spruce Lake creates lifetime memories.  Spectacular views, abundant rainbow trout and the chance to see grizzly bears makes for a wonderful day.  Our flights originate on Green Lake in Whistler and take you northwest into the South Chilcotin Mountains.  Whistler Fishing Guides is one of only two outfitters licenced to guide in this area.  A very special place.

The trout are eager, the weather is fine and we are ready to go.
