Stamp River Coho and Chinook River Fishing

Mid September Report
Full Swing!

Fall Coho on the fly

Regulation Information Link
  The Salmon moved into the system with the first low pressure system that hit coastal Vancouver Island in the beginning of the month. There has been a steady steam of fresh Chinook and Coho moving in daily. The quality of these fish is excellent and weather conditions have been ideal for ongoing migration.
Another small rain this week accommodated for a big push again. We look forward to ongoing success all season.

Very limited space remains:
