Stamp River Fishing Report

November 1 2016 (updated Nov 3 river levels- Flood conditions)

River very high conditions - Fall Steelhead


This past week efforts have switched from Chum to Fall Steelhead, however the continual rains and high waters have been hampering and limiting access.  Largely gear fishing with beads in the upper Stamp River.

If the water conditions improve so should the Steelhead opportunities. This week does not look like we will get any relief from the rains. We have cancelled our trips for Thursday through Sunday.

Update Nov 2:Stamp River Walter Levels (now at 3.20 as of Nov 32 - BLOWN OUT TOP TO BOTTOM

Update Nov 3: Lower Somass River is in flood stage at bottom end. Stamp Falls gauges no longer providing data. 
I suspect the gauges have been removed from the river, to prevent loss/damage, the last read out was yesterday afternoon at 2pm. The Sproat gauges are functioning and that river rose another full metre in the last 12 hours. We should be peaking by 3pm today. High tide is at 2:45 pm so hopefully that will be the crest in the lower somass.
