Stamp River - Welcome the Rain!

Some colour now and a little more water

March 12 2015

This weeks Highlights:

  It has has been a challenging week with the low and clear waters. We had a few days where we didn't have trips so guides took the welcome time off.

A few weeks ago you may recall Rod Hsu and Kitty Kanhoffen were here filming a webisode for Fishing with Rod.

The video has launched and is now online available for viewing.  Over 1500 views in the first 24 hours! Now that is popular!

Current Conditions
Low and some colour now with the welcomed rains the last two days.  The river is not blown out and based on the forecast we don't expect it get high.. We have boats today on the upper river so will update once we hear from them.

Note that the charts below are measured at the Robertson Creek Hatchery which is in the upper river so conditions down stream can be very different.

High Overcast with rain and fog at low levels.

Call us anytime for the latest conditions! We enjoy helping anglers plan their trips with or without guides.
