Cold Conditions River Shaping UpRiver High & Good Clarity
December 1, 2014
Four days without rain has brought the river into good fishing conditions. Still very high with fishable clarity throughout the system.
Below you will find graphs showing the river levels and rain for the last week and monthly trend..Also below is the local weather outlook for the next week.
Fresh Winter Steelhead were encountered in the lower river this weekend! They are a little early but then again so is winter. Its amazing how they know.
Most of the fish in the lower system are mostly still fall Steelhead. The upper River continues to be the most productive.
Steelhead will be caught on the Stamp River everyday from now until mid April. Steelhead fishing is a BC tradition that has deep roots and I can’t think of better place to enjoy such a past time,

Also note that your licence has to be printed. An electronic format on a device such as an iphone does not qualify as licence. Steelhead must be recorded on licence immediately upon landing them.
