Stamp River Vancouver Island Fishing Report

Winter Steelhead

March 1 2016 (see March 5 river level update below)


This Weeks Highlights & First day of Spring!:

Last weeks conditions were great and had welcomed the lower freezing level and perfect river levels. Mixed rains started on Sunday with a really good downpour Sunday and part of Monday. Surprisingly the river levels have remained fairly static since we can see the snowline on the mountains.

Looking forward there is rain in the forecast all week. Today's rainfall was downgraded from 60mm to 30mm but there is another front coming in behind it. Different models are showing different amounts of rainfall, so its a wait and see.  The river did come 10cm today.

*Mar 5 6:30am Update. River height and colour too extreme for fishing. 3.5 M. Saturday is now a day off as will be Sunday.
