Stamp River Fishing Report - Vancouver Island

Fall Steelhead

Oct 26 2015
Greetings from Port Alberni!

The river is in prime shape right now for the Fall Steelhead. They are in full swing now feeding on the Salmon Spawn and catches have been regular.

This past weekend Rod Hsu and Kitty were here filming a video website for "Fishing with Rod". They had a great weekend with multiple hook ups on some quality fish.  They were guided one day by Kevin and the other by Shaun. Check

Our focus is now on Steelhead in the upper river but there is also fresh Chum being reported in the lower river as well.

Look for Steelhead to stay aggressively feeding on the Salmon eggs through November
