Stamp River Fishing Report - Vancouver Island

Fall Steelhead

Nov 8 2015

The weather this past week has been ideal for setting up perfect conditions for Steelhead fishing. The occasional hard rains with a rise and subsequent drop in river heights continues to motivate Salmon to spawn and the Summers and Fall Runs to gorge on their eggs.  

There are fresh Fall Steelhead also entering the river and we will see this continue through the month of November and December.  The Stamp River has a a run of late fall Steelhead as well that mixes in with the Summers in the upper river.

While on the fly is also doable with an egg pattern with a float/sink fly line the encounters are less than gear fishing. None the less still can be done if your a good throw!

There are also Cuthroat that came out of the big lakes upstream now also still in the mix.
