Stamp River Fishing Report Vancouver Island

Fall & Winter Steelhead

Dec 5 2015 - graphs updated 10:40 pm

Its been a consistent month with higher waters, occasional blow outs, receding back to high water conditions.  The space between the blow outs has been good fishing in the upper river. In the middle of a big blow out this weekend. At 11:24pm it looks like the river may have crested. Hope so!

The fish are still feeding aggressively on loose salmon eggs. Artificial egg patterns work the best. Gear fishing has been the most productive. Too high for fly fishing on most days.
There is also a lot of resident rainbow trout feeding now as well. Some huge Cutthroat have also come out of Great Central Lake and into the river to get in on the egg smorgasbord.
Some fresh fix in the mix too as the later Fall runs move in. There is also rumored to be a few chromers coming in from the lower river.
