Vancouver, British Columbia - Freshwater Fishing Report
Squamish and Pitt
Brian McKinlay


with some slightly cooler weather this spring some rivers are remaining in good shape and others will be fishing quite well later than we thought. Bull trout and Cutthroat trout are being caught by fly fishing and we have taken some 5-6 pounders this past week!

We are eagerly anticipating our guided fly fishing trips on the upper Pitt River where Bull trout and Cutties and Rainbow are present in very good numbers and these Bull trout can go to 15 lbs! but usually average 3 or 4lbs. May 15 to early July is peak times for this river. Its accessed by our jetboat only or helicopter. Ask us about this gem of a river!

There is also some really good lake fly fishing for Rainbows all of June and July.
