Squamish and Whistler Fishing Report - Squamish River Watershed Snow-Pillow at All-Time Low

The following image is from the River Forecast Center - The Squamish river is on track to reach summer flow rates by the first week of June! Currently the Squamish is out.  Do not even bother fishing the main-stem unless you are at a confluence of a tributary stream.

Currently the Cheakamus river and Mamquam rivers are flowing at fish-able levels, however, both have turned colour due to the glacial till.

The Birkenhead river is currently running high but there are some pockets that hold fish. The clarity of the Birkenhead makes wading deceiving. Be careful as this river is very swift at this time of year.

All of these rivers have a BAIT BAN! Today I found Power-Bait on a river as well as I ran into an angler who admittedly had been fishing with Power Bait.  Power Bait, Worms, Salmon Eggs (Roe), and any flavored/smelly plastics are ILLEGAL on any stream in Squamish, Whistler, or Pemberton rivers.  Conservation Officers are on the lookout! Be sure to report violations to the authorities. 1-877-952-7277

Enjoy the weekend!

Tight lines,

Launch Day!

Launch Day!

Finally! Today is the day! Today is a very big day! We are finally launching our new website and video! I know, I know, the old site was dated (2004-ish) but for those of you who have never put together a website or worked with a company to build such a thing....it takes a long time! You just want the damn thing to be done so you can show it off and get back to important things like fishing!

 For those of you who did not see the old website here is a screen shot:



Here is a shot of the new site coming later today! I'm so excited!


 But I like fishing with multiple flies......so I had to put another one on-the-line...(he he he...see what I did there).

So over the past two months, in between fly fishing trips and competition angling, I put some video on a drive and fired it in the mail to a wicked video production company and said "I hope there is something to work with there."

This is what they sent back with the words "Here is the first cut..."



I said Pardon!! That might be an understatement of what actually happened....but you can let me know what you think of the video as we are on the Facebook and something called Twitter .  

So there you have it. A new website and a video. I would like to thank all those involved including Dave at Infuse Design, Joern Rhode at Whistler Traveller Magazine , Nick at Vantage Point Media House and all the clients and guides that made this all possible.  You're an amazing group of talented individuals!

It has been a long process and like fly fishing...we are always learning and trying to get better along the way.

Time to get off the line and back on the water...it is a long weekend after all!

Cheers,
