Fishing Info


Summer fly-fishing can prove difficult in Vancouver but fall fishing is all about action.

In the summer time river levels can become quite high, creating tough conditions for fishing. This is caused by the summer heat melting the winter’s snowpack. For up-to-date conditions please contact us and beware of any guiding company offering good river fly-fishing near Vancouver this time of year.

Fall is when the salmon migration begins on our rivers and this is a fantastic time for a trip. Tens of thousands of fish return to the Squamish River system and fishing from mid September to mid November for salmon can be spectacular with lots of big fish around. We fish within 5-10 miles of the open ocean and we never target spawning fish. We put our emphasis on targeting fresh healthy fish that pull extremely hard! These are great trips, for beginner or seasoned fishing nuts!



During the winter and spring is when we see some of the best fly-fishing in the Vancouver area. During the winter months from December through February we generally target the native rainbow trout and wild bull trout that live in our home rivers. Trudging throw the snow and fishing rivers void of anglers is a great way to spend a winters day and a shot at a bull trout is something unique to the west coast. is a on area are steelhead fishing seasons near Vancouver.

For fishing during the spring months 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 challenging fishery but it is also very rewarding with big hard-pulling chrome fish. The trout stick around this time of year as well. All this within an hour of Vancouver!



When you book your Vancouver fly-fishing trip with Chromer we’ll get you all set up for a great day on the river.

Trips usually start at 7 AM, that’s when our guide will pick you up in Vancouver for the hour drive north to Squamish. You’ll follow the Sea to Sky highway along beautiful body of water known as Howe Sound. Once in the Squamish Valley we get the waders on, string the rods and we’re off for the day.

You can expect some short easy walks to the rivers. On a clear day you’ll be surrounded by snow-capped peaks and have the pure waters of our coastal rivers flowing beneath you. Wading is relatively easy and depending on conditions and agility to you can expect to fish a variety of river stretches in a day. We usually wrap up the day late afternoon and will have you back in Vancouver for early evening.
