Squamish River Fishing Report - Feb 1, 2019


The rivers are rising today due to the rain we are experiencing , however, that will be short lived.

The weather forecast is for overnight temps in Squamish to drop to -9C (sorry Ontario but that is cold for us!) which will continue through early to mid next week.  That will cause the rivers to drop dramatically fast and fishing will slow way down.

The Squamish Snow Pillow Data shows that the current snow pack has now fallen below 2018 levels.  That said the early snow in December and January is keeping the levels above normal.  It is still far too early to predict how the final snowpack will play out on the summer pink salmon return but we will keep you posted.

Lower elevation snow is minimal at this time, however, most roads in the Upper Squamish are covered in 60+ cm of snow and mostly single lane with serious ruts. It is not recommended to travel without proper recovery equipment and tires.
