Stamp River Winter Steelhead Report

Jan 30 2018
Fishing today - High Water conditions

The floods that were predicted for the Stamp Somass river system fortunately did not occur. The river is very high but reasonable clarity. The knows spots that are good in high water are fishing. Our boats are on the river and only missed Monday, which in hind site, we could have fished, but cancelled as a precaution.

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 trend so you can see where we are relatively. Note that early December was a high water event.
