Stamp River Winter Steelhead Report

Feb 19 2018
Nice Conditions

River conditions remain ideal and dropping to low levels this week and with the cold snap and below freezing temperatures during the day and night, we expect the river to continue to drop. There are fish being encountered and some days are better than others. Overall this has been a slower season for Winter Steelhead.


River Gauges
DFO has a series of gauges on the river which we utilize to share information on levels.  There is the gauge at Robertson Creek, Stamp Falls and the Sproat River. 

Stamp Falls gauge is our key indicator that we follow to indicate trends.  This gauge is below the confluence of the Ash and Stamp, so high higher volumes than the one at Robertson Creek which is on the very upper Stamp.The Sproat River gauge is not functioning at the time of writing. This gauge is very helpful towards indicating the trend but it is a very short river with Sproat lake behind it. The Sproat River gauge which is a few km above where it empties into the Somass River.

For this snapshot I have included the December and January trend so you can see where we are relatively. Note that early December was a high water event.
