Stamp River Winter Steelhead ReportMarch 1 2018
Low River Conditions
|With the long cold weather trend, the river has continued to drop and is now in "low" conditions.
Guests are being guided in both the upper and lower river sections. It has been a slow season this year with a couple of encounters on average per day. Still a great experience to be out on the water!
The freezing level is at the base of the mountains so any rainfall in the coming days will not accumulate to increase river flows.
A few quality fish around!
DFO has a series of gauges on the river which we utilize to share information on levels. There is the gauge at Robertson Creek, Stamp Falls and the Sproat River.
Stamp Falls gauge is our key indicator that we follow to indicate trends. This gauge is below the confluence of the Ash and Stamp, so high higher volumes than the one at Robertson Creek which is on the very upper Stamp.The Sproat River gauge is not functioning at the time of writing. This gauge is very helpful towards indicating the trend but it is a very short river with Sproat lake behind it. The Sproat River gauge which is a few km above where it empties into the Somass River.
For this snapshot I have included the January and February trend so you can see where we are relatively. Note that early December was a high water event.
