FlyFishing for Trophy Trout

We offer some excellent angling opportunities for sea-run trout, steelhead, resident and sea-run Bull trout, Cutthroat trout and Rainbow trout. Some of the best trout fishing occurs during early spring, summer and fall on both rivers and lakes in the Vancouver and Merritt area's. We fish for Bull Trout or Dolly Varden as they are often referred to, rainbows & cutthroat on several remote rivers and we offered stillwater fly fishing for rainbow trout in the Merritt /Kamloops area.

Feb to April - is good for resident Bull Trout, Cutthroat and the occassional Rainbow. Water levels are consistently low as most of our local rain turns into snow in the Alpine glaciers. These resident fish are much smaller than their sea-run cousins in June but they can offer some steady action for anglers looking for some adventure. Size ranges from 10 to 16 inches with the odd fish up to 20 inches. There is alway a chance at hooking into a surprise steelhead as they begin to enter the system in early March.

May 15 to July 15 - is peak fly fishing for sea-run Bull Trout on the Upper Pitt River. These fish enter the Upper river from the lake heading for thier spawning ground in Garabladi Park. These fish are chrome bright and full of fight. Size ranges from 3 to 10 lbs with lots of fish in the 4-6 lb range. Some of the larger fish can reach as much as 14lbs. This is one of British Columbia's Premier fisheries with limited access and a wilderness experience. We also target Cutthroat on the Fraser & Harrison Rivers as trout feeding on salmon fry migrating back to the ocean.

This is also a great time to fly-fish interior lakes, check out our stillwater adventures.

STS Guiding: Fly Tie Plastic EggAugust to October - offers some unique fly-fishing for Trout on some of our harder to reach river systems like the Lillooet and Pitt Rivers. Early salmon runs have reached their home waters and begin preparing their spawning grounds. During this period the trout take position laying behind the salmon waiting for any loose or drifting eggs. We target these trout using by dead drifting egg patterns.

STS Guiding: Fly Tie Plastic EggFor those fly anglers who have never tried this, it is quite an experience. We attach a # 14 or 16 egg pattern to a short leader, floating line and a strike indicator. Short casts close to shore is often the key.

This is also our peak season for fly fishing for salmon.

Pitt River Bull Trout

Why book with STS? We offer some of the best angling opportunities anywhere in the Vancouver /Fraser Valley area. Our fly fishing adventures are unique as we fish some of the more remote rivers in SW British Columbia Region. We are constantly developing new adventures and fishing uncharted waters. We use river rafts on several remote rivers and Jet Boats on others. Experience the thrill of jet boating up rivers that seldom see another angler. Rafting expeditions are also adventurous and thrilling.
