It was great to see that the WFN crew took some time to checkout what I have know all along… the Stamp River is the greatest river on the Island!

Stamp, Somass and Sproat River fish beware!  A new boat in the West Coast River Charters fleet has been commissioned.

I talked to Larry today and we agreed on the schedule for the new boat today.  E&D Manufacturing in Whiskey Creek. It should handle the Stamp River really well.  Looking forward to taking it for a drive in a month or so.

Pictures to follow soon!

Sockeye is next in line as well as summer steelhead getting going around mid June 2011. Bookings for the fall are getting busy as the runs of Chinook and Coho mixing with the summer run steelhead will carry us through till the end of December.

A little bit of rain couldn’t keep us on shore today.  Here’s a beauty Steelhead that Kenny landed today.

Steelhead Spring Salmon Coho Chinook Sockeye River Fishing Guided

At first I thought something was wrong with my camera when I looked at the picture on the screen.  There is nothing wrong with my camera, that Steelhead really IS that chrome!  The best part is, there are plenty more where that one came from and I’ll show you where.  Winter Steelhead fishing is in full effect and the river has plenty to offer.  These Steelhead are voracious feeders and are hitting hard on imitation worm lures and goey bobs.  There is plenty of fishing left this winter and prime spots are still available.  Don’t let your chance to fish the world famous Stamp River, Somass River and Sproat River pass you buy.  Give me a call or send me an email to book today!

 

Tight lines,

Nick

How could we resist doing a little showing off over our lunch break on shore.  Perfect conditions made for an ideal day on the river.  The cloud cover made it easier to spot the schools of salmon and made it pretty exciting watching them be played.
